To Debra, Trudy, Nadine, Mickey, Tonya, Marsha and Annalisa, my deepest condolences on the departure of Waple your mother. I will miss seeing her on my every trip to Barbados and the stories she would have to make me laugh about the old neighbourhood. She worked hard for her family and prayers are for her reward in Heaven.

The Carrington, Hall and Wilkinson families extend condolences to the family of my Aunty Waple. We recently saw Aunty Waple and she met my daughter for the first time and we hugged. Not knowing that was the last hug. My mum Doll and father Precious pre-deceased her and they were good, good friends. You will forever remain in our hearts. A loving person, like you were, is hard to find.

Rest In Peace and Rise in Glory my dear Aunty Waple.

The Marshall Family extends sincere condolences to the Blackman Family on the passing of their beloved "Waple" a fun-loving amazing Lady who is now at peace and resting in her Creator's Arms. Waple will be greatly missed by all but we will continue to cherish her memories.
May God strengthen and bless each of you at this time of mourning.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
