        ChurchDude, Sweetsopp was my good good friend, and there was no way I could have made it to the funeral, and so with my heart felt gratitude, I thank you for making it in your busy schedule, to not only attend and to take these lovely pics but to orchestrate such a beautiful epilog as this to our dearly departed friend, we are blessed, and I thank you very much. I pray God bless His people and let His face to shine upon us.
        sistactry, thanks for the kind words. Seeing you were unable to make it to the funeral, I am very glad I was able to bring some of it to you. I think of this epilog as my personal tribute to Grace, and I hope it helps to bring some form of closure for those who loved and embraced her as family and friend.

            It helped tremendously to put some closure and finality to a very shocking reality for all of us who loved Grace, and we are forever grateful to you and Pastor Maureen, the support and comfort from our loved ones, is a huge blessing, and a wonderful gift....thank you. You have a big and wonderful heart, God bless you.

            ps. you should seriously think of writing and sharing some of your insights

              I was asked to share this link on Grace's FB page. Mr. C., is that OK with you, if I get Nicki's approval?

                  Final goodbye

                  At my age, I've bade many a friend a final farewell: my best girlfriend, Jackie my friend from age 4, my first boyfriend, my bestfriend, Newell, from AIDS, my dad in 1993, my mom just this last November 1. I didn't have the relationship with Sweetssop that many on ja.com did, but the pain felt by her passing is evident in the pictures posted here. This is something that we all have in common; we all lose someone we love and we will miss them all of the rest of the days we have on this earth.

                  Thanks, Churchdude.

                        Churchdude even though there is a part of me that still refuses to accept that Sweets is really gone... I want to add my thanks to everyone else's for allowing us to be a part of Sweets celebratory send off.
                        Your eloquent words added so much poignance to the pictures and really gave me a sense of the atmosphere.
                        Based on what you described and the snippets of video I saw I think she would have approved... I could almost hear her comments and see her smile.

                        Much respect to Pastor MC - I am sure that was not an easy thing to do, but the effort you made on behalf of a friend says much about you.

                        In death as in life she continues to touch many...

                        Rest easy my friend... God said it was time for you to lay down your burdens

                          Thank you Jazz. I am still trying to come to grips with it myself. You just don't know when. Aye sah.

                            Thank you for sharing.
                            It pleases me that although we are far and wide, in times like these, we Jamaicans really come together and support each other.
