Written by Dahlia Welsh

Markdown:When I found this collection of letters after my Grandfather’s passing I knew I wanted to share them. So I would like to say thank Jamaicans.com for going on this trip down memory lane with me. And as we close out another year – where does the time go? I hope that your 2009 was good and that 2010 is great!The following letter was written by only my grandfather Stafford because my grandmother – Ms. Ella – had already gone home in 1991.Bless up!Dahlia D.
