    Bre says she's doing good, however I am asking that we continue to say a prayer for her. It was just the two of them until Nicki joined them last year.

      Hello Sweetssop,
      I know that you are still around looking out over all of us.
      The kind and gently words that you posted in all your messages to me will be missed.
      The way that you expressed yourself shows what type of person you are.
      I am sure that you went ahead to pave the way for all of us when it is our turn to join you.
      There are so many reasons why I will always remember you SS.
      We were born in the same parish of St Bess.
      The way that you put your sentences together using kind words.
      Careful not to offend anyone.
      You inspire one person and that person will inspire someone else and the chain goes on and on.
      Proving the point. Write in a way that people will understand you,
      Not in a way that they will mis-understand you.

      To the X-MAN and all the administrators here,
      may I suggest that we continue the work that SS started.
      A forum award for kindness to fellow j’ boardites.
      With her name on it.

      Lately I have been shocked and amazed at how cruel some people from this planet have become.
      It would be nice if we all re-read or rethink any answers before sending out the reply.
      Be nice – avoid confrontation- ignore the person if possible.
      They will soon learn by their own mistakes.

      Here are a few lines from a poem that I wrote about Jamaica in the year 2006.
      “Visitors who come to our shores
      often rave about how much they have
      learned from our people.
      How to have fun, be friendly,
      courteous and show respect.

      Now that you have learned this,
      please go out and help all
      new visitors to our island.

      Share all the good that you have learned.

      Start this by being
      polite on this forum.

      Isn’t this why you love
      Jamaica and keep returning.

      Someone stepped up and
      made an impression on you.

      Now it is your turn to help
      others to feel the same way” ……
      BEAUTIFUL WORDS CURTIS....I love the idea of a Kindness award in honor of Sweetssop. She truley did care about people and showed it with her phone calls to boardies just days before her departure....She was always checking on people to make sure they were Ok.

      LOVE ALLA UNNU! Hate that it took this to bring me back to this wonderful place.

        Sweetsop, you will never be forgotten

        Sweetssop has lifted many a spirit with her kind words, provoked much laughter and merriment. May the Lord bless her soul, and watch over her remaining family.

        Sweetssop, I will miss you.
        Do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do.

          Wow, took a chance on logging in here. Can't believe this. I hope her family gets through this difficult time intact and being cared for.

            Great suggestion Curtis. We should add it to the end of year awards we used to do. I know we have not done it in a while...please throw something at me in October to remember.

            Ochigal that was really funny....dwl

              Maybe it's something we should continue in her honor, yes?

                CurtisD - good to see you and love your post.

                Going to end with one note and that is: Death ends a life, not a relationship. SS will always be with us in spirit.

                    Let's do the Call-a-thon in her honor. Lets pick a date. Who know the logistics of it?

                          • I am truly sorry to hear this. She was way too young to be gone so soon.

                            I pray for strength of spirit for her children. I know the road they now have to walk.

                            Lawd, life is for the the ones you are with since tomorrow doesn't belong to us.

                            Sleep well SweetSop. Sleep well.

                              • Ah, NO!

                                Now I know why I chose to visit today. This is devastating news. I, too, spoke with Sweetsop during one of call-a-thons and even so many years later, have very fond memories of that time with her. She was such an easy person to speak with.

                                I feel as though she allowed us to go along with her on the journey of her darling daughter growing up. Bre was certainly the light of her life. I did not know she had a son, but I have no doubt that his light shined brightly for her as well.

                                This is hardly the way I wanted 2013 to begin. Rest well, sweet lady.
