I cherished and admired your zeal and determination to survive amidst all odds.

You were the last of my father’s siblings and that made me love and appreciate you more.

Your genuine love for family bonded us. I will always remember the times I spent with you and your memory will live on in my heart.

Auntie, you have fought the fight, you have ran the race.
Sleep on and take your rest, Auntie.

Lovingly remembered by your niece, Jean.

Mama Rock, it was a pleasure knowing you and being part of your family all these years. May you be at peace now with Papa Rock and your son Max and look upon us all until we meet again. We can hear the music playing in heaven and we are sure you are dancing. You never have to worry about Curtis and his family because we will always be there for them. Kisses and hugs to you Mama Rock.

I'm so blessed to have known Auntie Agnes and family over so many wonderful years. Auntie was like a second mother to me, full of life and humor and always up for a good laugh. Her love for Michelle and Rebecca will always be remembered. We are so saddened at her passing but take solace that Auntie is going to better place. May she rest in peace.
Love... Alan and family.

Auntie Agnes was the last surviving sibling of my late father Felix Cabral. She was very dear to my Dad, and after his passing, she became even dearer to me. I loved her unconditionally and seized every opportunity to spend quality time with her. I enjoyed her love for music, learnt many of her favorite recipes, loved watching her go out to share her meat pies with the sanitation workers, and enjoyed listening to her life stories.
She shared with me that her favorite song was "AGAINST THE WIND" by Bob Seger; as the lyrics reminded her of the challenges she faced on her journey in life.
She was my safe place to run to for serenity when my world seem topsy turvy. The residing aromas of music and food in her home made everyone entering feel welcomed and entertained.
I will miss her immensely! Rest in peace Auntie. Gone, but NEVER forgotten.....Your love is engraved on my heart .

With loving thoughts

On behalf of the members of the Rocke family in Winnipeg, Manitoba (i.e., Errol, Len, Atlanta, Alva, Micheal) and Annette Joseph and family in Montreal, Canada, Cynthia Lee Mack, Lloyd Rocke and Deane Rocke in Trinidad and Tobago and Linda, Neil, Katina and Isaiah, Tampa, Florida we would like to extend our sincere condolences to our nephews Jeffrey, Micheal, Curtis, and Milton and their families on the passing of our dear sister-in-law, Agnes. We have thoroughly enjoyed and have fond memories of the times we have shared together with Karl and Agnes in Winnipeg. Also, we have wonderful memories of the times we have visited with Agnes and Karl at their home and at our sister Linda's home in Tampa with Agnes and Karl. Agnes has left us with many wonderful memories of joy, laughter, dancing, singing and learning to play all fours. We recall Agnes' singing of her favorite Christmas calypso called Santa Looking for a Wife by Sparrow and cooking her favorite B-B-Q ribs and Allo-Pie. Agnes will be missed dearly and we will keep her in our prayers. We thank God for the long life she enjoyed.

Always full of great stories, and even better one-liners, Auntie Agnes was a treasure. It was a real gift to spend a week with her earlier this year indulging her wishes for mauby, red solo and peardrax!
Our condolences to the family.
