Celebration of Life Service

I write with sadness and unbelief that Aunt Ila (the name my sister called her from childhood) has passed away. I feel like she was the matriarch of the family. Every time I visited, I thought about how cool it was that there were four generations in the house at the same time.
I have many fond memories of Aunt Ila. I was so happy all the times I visited that she would cook salmon just for me :) And she made the best carrot cake ever….. I am amazed that even up to the last time I talked with her on the phone, when she answered, she always recognized who was calling, “Hello Melody?” And even if she wasn’t feeling well, she always gave glory to God for keeping her alive. I am so sad that I may never get to enter her house again as it is the house I remember the most since I was a child because I spent soooo much time there.
I want to thank my mother Aldith for taking care of her the last few years, with a lot of help from my sister. She asked mummy to move in with her which enabled her to stay in her home all these years. Aunt Eula would not want yours or Ann-Marie’s assistance to go unnoticed.
Aunt Ila, we look forward to seeing you again in the earth made new.

Sincere condolences to Pansy (Aldith), John Barrymore (Diane), Dennis, Rose and the entire family many of whom we have not had the privilege of meeting.
“Mum Martin” came into our lives in August 1982 when she married my Father Samuel James Martin, following the death of his first wife several years previously. It was an honour to officiate with their nuptials.
We have grown to love and appreciate Mum over the years, her gracious demeanour, kind hospitality, warm welcome and the delicious meals prepared for us while maneuvering herself in her motorized wheelchair. Only in recent years were we permitted to assist the Chef!!
As we visited Mum on an annual basis since the passing of my Father in 1999, it was always enjoyable to sit and reminisce with her about the love they shared for each other and the good times spent together. I told her of my gratitude at every possible opportunity and repeat it now one last time, how much I appreciated the happiness my Father shared with Mum during the seventeen years of their marriage and the wonderful loving care she took of him. Our last visits together in February were no exception. I am so very thankful for Nurse Diane who held the phone to Mum’s ear on Sabbath May 16th around 13:35 affording me an opportunity to pray with her one last time. In recent years her constant, yet cheerful lament would be “Wayne it is not good to grow old, I am old now “. Then she would hastily express her gratitude for the Lord’s goodness towards her. Mum’s prayer was always to have a little place in the Lord’s Kingdom. I pray we will all meet again in the made new. On behalf of myself, my wife Jean, our children Gary, Sarah-Jane, Francine and grandson Jayden may she rest well until that grand morning. We are saddened that based on world conditions beyond our control we are unable to attend the celebration of the life of Eulalee Boyd-Martin - “Mum Martin”. Wayne Martin , Your “Son”,

Et condolences to the friends and families of Eulalee Boyd Martin. I remember meeting Mrs. Martin just once but she left a lasting impression on me. She was very nice, warm and welcoming to me. I could definitely see why she is so cherished and loved by the family.
Revelation 21:4 - "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."
My condolences and Love

My dear grandaunt Eula, words are not adequate to express how much I sadly miss you. I am happy for the days, months and years that was spent with your dear sister Enid who is now deceased, who is my beloved grandmother. Meeting you made possible through your dear sister. I happy that I was able to visit you a year ago, gave you a hug and a kiss, which I know you deeply appreciated.
Aunt Eula I know that it didn't end there. Communication by phone was done regular. I will definitely miss your lovely voice "Hi Petal" , with love from your heart. You always happy to hear from me. One of your desire was and I code " I wish that you and Chris was near by so we both could help to take care of you just like how we took so so much care of my sister Enid".
I love you so so much my dear grandaunt; its sad that I will not hear your voice again on this earth. Based on the love that you have shown on earth, your caring hands, your kind words. Etc. It won't be the same, due to the fact that my husband, Chris and myself wont have a grandaunt to help encourage us along the pilgrimage path way.
You certainly help to filled that empty space of my beloved grandmother, now you are gone, there is an emptiness inside.
I am console that you will live with Jesus forever knowing that you live for him while you were here.
Love always Aunt

Rest in peace until we meet again my beautiful Aunt Eula. I will miss our telephone catch ups. You are the last of my mother's siblings always so supportive, coming to the UK to be with mum in her final days and traveling to Jamaica for her funeral. I am so sad not to be able to come over to say goodbye. Love you always.
