Tribute to Mama - I wrote this letter to my mama almost eight years ago. It is timeless and given that I am still at a loss for words, I offer this as my tribute.

Love Letter To My Mama March 11, 2013 (c)
Dear Mom, Mommy, Mama, It’s been a while since I wrote a love letter to you and I think it is long overdue. I miss your face, your soft hands and the ‘mama’ smell that means safety, comfort, love and home to me. I know that you long to see me and I do too.

I want you to know that I am sorry for all the worry, pain, hurt and heartache that you had to deal with this past two years and for all the years that you have known and loved me. Rest assured that I will never give that much power to anyone but God, because He is the only captain of my heart.

Do you know that I remember with joy, the days that we went to work together to use the scientific calculator at the Farm because we could not afford one yet? I remember with joy and gladness the days we fished and cooked our catch for dinner. I love the days when you sewed and I would do my little thing beside you. I love all the ordinary things we did together, the music you loved & shared, the simple things you taught me, the remarkable way you helped me to love life, live life and love others. I love you and all that you are [and have been].

Seventeen More...Minutes of Grace, by Patrice Donalds-Morgan, 2005 (c)
What would you do with (what if you had only) seventeen more moments of grace? How would you want to live? How would you want to die? Who would remember you? Who would forget you? Who would love you? Who would hate you? Who would laugh with you? Who would cry with you? Who would declare you...a masterpiece to behold?
Florence E. Stewart was and always will be...a masterpiece to behold.❤
Your loving daughter, Patrice

My Dear Grand-Aunt Florence

Reading and hearing so many precious memories of you, have taught me how much of a lovely, caring and Inspiring person you were. I'm sorry i did not get the chance to make much memory with you.
I do remember tho when cousin Barrington passed and you came by our house and when that music started to play you throwed down and show out, ohhh you can move to the rythym of Music, i loved every minute of it because i myself is the same way.

I am very sad today because life has kept me from enjoying my family.

Rest in Peace Angel
Love Mureen, Sashana, Tyrone and Shawna

A Mother Like Many Other.

Mom, my one regret was lying to you once.

I still feel embarrassed because my childish act was unnecessary and selfish. From that point I have learned and relearned that lesson over and over and over again even with my very own children. My developed sixth sense of finding the truth has been sharpened by that instance of having to come clean with you. I appreciate your insistence for the duty of being honest.

Added to your forthrightness, among the four women of Parnassus, you became the extension of your mother and aunt and a big sister to your brother and to Sister Veronica as well. Your younger and at the time only surviving brother added to our cumulative experiences and exposure to rocksteady family ties.

Family ties that kept us reminded of your older sister Adassa (Sister Mummy) and her husband Papa (P) Pinnock, Bwoy Neath, aunt Pearl, aunt Thelma and aunt B (Ms. Campbell) - virtual and in-place guardians who helped mold and protect us from ourselves and the potential dangers of the day.

It was fortunate for us that even people who weren't your blood relatives would keep you atuned of our whereabouts and care. Your network of guardians provided invaluable information that would come in handy when rescue missions had to be undertaken.

You were marvelous at the practice of being human. You were one who gave of herself in time, consideration, genuine affection and courtesy to everyday people. You were truly the Florence Nightingale that so many attributed the epitome of comapssion.

Your grit and determination are testaments upon which you added new careers to your resume each time time life dared you to reinvent yourself.

Mom you weathered the trials and the demands of raising your children all the while offering each of us a chance to more educatoon so much so that you extended a close friend of mine the same opportunity at International College on Grand Cayman

So long, Mom. See you on the other side.

From the Morgans:
Our families have been together from Ms Gatha, as my mother Aunt G calls her. My mom would share memories of here being the most caring and loveable person ever. Then Barry came into our lives and we made the connection to Ms Florence, his mom and William, his dad. My parents and his parents lived in the same yard in Curatoe Hill, Jamaica. I had the privilege of meeting Ms Florence after Barry passed and there was neither a dull moment with this Angel. She confirmed stories told to me by my mom about their hilarious youth and then some. Rest in peace Ms Florence.

With sadness in my heart at this moment, I do not know even where to start about my true dear friend Florence Stewart. Over the past years we have lost contact with each other, but I truly know that the love we had for each other never changed. It is of great loss to everyone who really came in contact with her. Especially her siblings. She was one in a million whom I have ever come in contact with. Loving, warm, kindhearted, you name it, there was nothing too hard for her to do for anyone. She would do the last to help you. I miss her so much. But God understands, she is in a better place. No more agony, no more pain. I know we will meet on the other side of Jordan. Rest in peace my beloved friend. And to all her children, I share your grief with you all. Hold on, your mother has left behind a legacy for you to follow. God bless you all, keep the faith.
