Condolences to Barbara and all family members, Losing a husband and father is one of life's most difficult things to bear, and it's hard to know what to say to comfort those who are grieving a parent. our words of sympathy for the loss of a husband may help friends and family members know that you'ii be there for them when they're ready to talk, cry or grieve with you. His influence is obvious in the way he conducts his life. your husband legacy will live on. I just wanted you to know that you and your family are in our thoughts.

Uncle Jimmy you will be deeply missed, my dear aunty I send my condolences, will always remember the time I spent with him as a child delivering flowers to the west coast, a red Ju-c, two fish cakes and then other times heading up Saint john getting coconut husk for the flowers. He was a great man and a great business figure to me. Apologies that I couldn't make the funeral, I would have like to send him down to rest. But in all he lived life to the fullest and I will always remember his stories. But hats off to you uncle time and I bid you farewell.

Cyrilene, Erlene and I will always remember you as the honest, caring cousin who was like a big brother to us when we were all growing up together. Barbara and Wilma our sincere condolences to you. Margaret also sends her sympathy. As the song says - When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be - especially when we meet again with auntie, our second mother who only wanted the best for all of us. Most of all when we see Jesus, the true and just Judge - We will sing and shout the victory.
