Sometimes a family could get disconnected by geographical distance, family disputes etc.. Aunty Mag's value for family never let those potential barriers be even a bleep on her radar.
Although we lived here in Trinidad,we shared many good times when we met in Barbados, Mass., Florida or in Trinidad. We all seem to be cut from the same cloth - our passion for gardening (the land,especially our fondness for Barbados) runs deep within our DNA, Our fierce and protective love of family is yours and our driving strength..
Like daddy, you were quiet some may even say reserved but we knew that we could always count on you (and him) for your practical advise. You never judged even if you held a different opinion or point of view.
I will always remember your big warm smile, your chuckle and "liming" with you by Angela. I know so much more about our Johnson / Foster "roots" from these shared times.
Although you were not able to communicate or remember who I was in our recent visits over the last few years, what struck me recently is despite all of that you still were the same person inside that we loved. You did not want to be fussed over too much, you valued order and cleanliness. When you said "No, too much, too much" when we tried to feed you a full balanced meal - it really was too much for your needs at that time, and yes you would prefer something a little sweet like your Mc Donald's frozen drinks and a small kids serving of nuggets and fries (who wouldn't). Your love for your family may have found its expression in your love for your "kitty cat",your family and care givers. Although we are deep caring family people, we may not be the touchy, huggy, kissy, muccchhy types.
Thank you for sharing your life with us, will miss you but your time with us will always be lovingly remembered.
