Dear Beatrice Byer Bayle,words can not just complete what I want to say about your dad mr Trevor 😭😭😭. I met your dad in Nigeria during his working days in Nigeria. He was absolutely acomplete gentle man and focus on his job. I respect him a lot because he never stayed a moment without talking about you. He is a kind of man that knows how to pull the best out of someone even when the person doesn’t believe in his or herself, Trevor will follow a person up to see that the best came out of the person. As a journalist here in Nigeria when I met him 1998 or thereabout he said to me two things I will never forget . 1: He said as a journalist have u ever thought of been an author, writing books? I laughed and said to him no I have not and I don’t know how to start , he was happy and kept laughing at me after he finished laughing he now gave me a very crucial topic as an assignment to go and write on How I WAS DISVIRGINED. I felt why should I publish my personal secret but your dad insisted which I did. After I finished I submitted it to him he read through and from they I knew I could be an an author. 2: He told me that he sees me in the fashion industry in future I would be celebrated as a celebrity in these two areas if I can be focus to pursue the dream.
He impacted me with so many things especially self confidence etc I really learnt a lot from him.
😭😭😭😭😭 I have searched for him since he left Nigeria, so I decided to not give up my search on him because I have finished writing some books and the poems he asked me to write for him which I wanted to know I was going to send them to him 😭😭😭 just for me to see his obituary after finally finding him. He was a mentor a friend my confidant etc. But my joy is to see his funeral service in church because I remember giving him a Bible as a little token to appreciate him for bringing the best in me. I AM PROUD HE DIED IN THE LORD. Beatrice May the Lord comfort you and all the Byers families may His peace and mercies not depart from you people in the name of Jesus. TREVOR FAREWELL AND REST IN PEACE . We would all miss you greatly

Dear Mrs. Byer Bayle,

Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your dad, our dear Trevor.

He was larger than life, and we miss his ease, his laughter and that special smile, not to mention his neck scarf which he wore when came to Trinidad for Carnival.

May you and your family be comforted at this difficult time, and may his soul rest in peace.

With warmest regards on behalf of my family

Judy Boopsingh
Widow of Trevor Boopsingh (Trinidad)

Meine liebe Beatrice, wir alle denken ganz fest an Dich. Ich hoffe, Du bist nicht zu traurig und kannst alles erledigen, was nötig ist, ohne allzuviel Stress
Ich denke ganz viel an Trevor und habe so viele Erinnerungen an ihn!!!!!
Gott sei dank ist Antonio bei Dir ! Andererseits kann man sich sicher sehr auf die Nerven gehen, wenn man in einen Zimmer eingesperrt ist. Hoffentlich seid Ihr nicht mehr in Quarantene!
Ich umarm Dich ganz, ganz fest und hab Dich sehr lieb!!!

Trevor was a friend from boyhood and I have always admired his brilliant mind and unassuming manner. He has made a important contribution to the region. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
