Cousin Eileen Dorothy  Morris who celebrated her 94th birthday last August, fell in her home immediately after the protracted earth tremor that rocked all of Guyana, Trinidad, Venezuela and other regional territories a fortnight ago.

Cousin Eileen was physically active and had no major complaints.  She was the mother of ten….five boys and five girls and  one of her grandchildren is a practising physician in Guyana and from confidential family reports, kept a close eye on her granny  literally and metaphorically.

Cousin Eileen was a staunch member of the English church at Cove and John and on Thursday September 6th the resident priest will preside over her  funeral.

She was also the keeper of some of Victoria’s deepest secrets and a great subscriber to the oral traditions of the  Peoples Republic of Victoria.

One of her favorite nephews Jeggae is celebating his 62nd birthday September 9th and will be in Jamaica. From all accounts he is planning to duck in to Guyana for the funeral and rejoin his family on this planned and accustomed annual tradition.
