We don't remember when we adopted her as our "Aunt Daph", but we loved her as an aunt and she accepted us. Fond memories of our visits with her will remain with us. Her sweet treats for us will be missed. We pray God's comfort for the family.

Growing up with Aunty Daff in Jamaica was a fun experience it was like growing up with an awesome big sister. When Mom and Dad would go into Kingston and say Aunty is in charge we were happy campers as we knew we were in for a fun time and maybe, just maybe Aunty would take us to the ice cream parlour where she worked and make us one of those delicious ice cream sodas. We were kids ice cream was a real treat.
When we all moved to the U. S. and Aunty lived in Manhattan and we lived in Brooklyn, that did not stop me from being a frequent visitor at her place almost every weekend I would ride the subway to Manhattan to hang at Aunty's. She was just someone you wanted to be around, a kind gentle soul who will be greatly missed. But God needs you Aunty so we have to say goodbye and may you rest in peace.
