QUATRO WORKING CLASS WOMEN FUNERALISED IN GT

This writer only got the news on Tuesday …the same day that cousin Elsie Schweir was being funeralised at the Auchline chapel on the Corentyne Coast.  Elsie was 78 and was socially active.

A fortnight ago my lifelong neighbor and family Waveney Thomas 86, went thru. In the Peoples Republic of Victoria, Cousin Waveney had one son who is a Professor of Mathematics at Medgar Evers College. Her son Trevor Thomas, who lives and works in New York, did not attend the funeral but sent an emissary to represent him. Cousin Waveney, for several significant years, was part of the housekeeping staff and merry maid at the Belfield residence of the Former President LFS Burnham. As I write I recall the late night raids myself and brother made on the overhanging succulent and seasonal genip, sapodilla and dungs trees in the neighboring yard. Perhaps it is too late now to ask for forgiveness but the bats were twice as destructive in harvesting the fruits. Continue reading

Victoria needs all its peoples irrespective of their station in life. The purpose of the breakfast morning is to rekindle and recapture the spirit of togetherness and productivity.

Subject: Birthday Party Marred with Tragedy

By Ewalt Ainsworth   –  July 9, 2014

Hazel Marshall, a Guyanese teacher in the Georgia school system, amassed 36 of her best buddies for a visit to Panama to celebrate her 60th Birthday. All decorations and preparations were in place for the Saturday night party on July 5th in the hotel where they stayed, when a member of the group did not observe the Hurricane Albert warnings and ventured out on the morning of July 5th for a stroll on the beach at the resort.

Initial reports suggest that Mrs. Patsy Brerenon (Miss Patsy) may have suffered a heart attack and drowned that Saturday morning after being washed up on the beach several times from the forces of hurricane Arthur’s waves. Miss Patsy, 78 years of age, was a fiercely independent retiree and home maker and lived in Stone Mountain Georgia. Continue reading
