Mom,
It has been a while since we saw each other. I hope that God is taking care of you as you did for us. Your memories and love always bring a smile to my face. Rest in peace in the most holy of places.

Today is one year since my lifelong friend of 60+ years has left us. I will always remember your smile, the days when we chased the butterflies in the grounds of Ebenezer School, and our telephone conversations almost every night.
You were taken from us so quickly that we never even get a chance to say so long, but you will remain in our hearts forever. Sadly missed: Rose & Family

To family and friends yesterday was 11 weeks since mom went to rest its my dream and hope that regardless of our differences we will hold each other dear. Mom gave so so much legacy to us that i hope each and everyday we'll realize how bless we are. Lets work to build each other up not leave each other feeling like a lone survivor on an sinking ship. May each day greet you with sunshine and if it's raining or snowing please learn to enjoy it too. Get plenty of rest and exercise and take time to talk to others cos they are missing mom too. Love pw, oldest child

Thank you mom for the nine months you carried me.
Thank you mom for teaching me what it means to work hard for whatever I wanted.
Thank you mom for never forgetting you had son name Errol.
Most of all, thank you for never judging me and pouring love my way, no matter whether it was day or night. You were a blessed woman in god and my eyes.

Love be forever..........never ending. Errol.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Hi g'ma....the father has called one of his angels home early and you will truly be missed. I never thought i would wake up on the day i turned 25 to hear the news of you passing, i was devastated. Throughout the years you never lost touch with your grandbaby no matter what my parents were going through and i love you so much for that. The last time i heard your voice was Easter 2012 and i will forever hold your sweet voice in my heart and memories. Where you are now, there is no pain and sufferation, just peace and i know the pearly gates opened right up as you reached the doorsteps, that is the only place for an angel like you to rest your soul. Keep an eye on me, my dad, my sisters, my brother, my cousins, my aunts and uncles because we need your love and gentle spirit to cover us while we are still in this world. I was sad to hear your passing at first grandma but i just look at it as you joining my team of guardian angels. I love you now and forever more...your grandbaby Shaliza........

Ms. Ico, thank you so much for your support, understanding and love. I am forever grateful that you were a part of my life and treasure the times we spent together. "Mom", your smile, curry goat and red peas soup, will be forever missed!

I didn't know Ms. Bennett as well as I would have liked, but I was truly saddened when informed of her passing. She and I became acquainted through her granddaughter, Takisha, shortly before she relocated to Florida. In meeting her, she made me feel warm and welcomed...like I knew her for years! She had a beautiful spirit and will be missed.

To the family, may you find peace and comfort in your memories of Ms. Bennett.
