And that morning my friends is when our Lord comes to take us home, so lets get ourself ready to meet Roma and the Lord, which is very soon. To the members of the Woodfordhill SDA church, I know you are sad now because you have lost a precious jem from amoung you, but hold on look to the sky for redemtion draweth nigh.

    It is with great sadness i extend my condolences to Mathew and Jacob.

    A few words of comfort, death is not the end…..though you are saddened and deeply grieved by a loss that cannot be replaced……remember the times spent and continue to honour and cherish them dearly. use them as guides and signs to continue being the best that you all have bgun to be .

    Mourn all you all can….. remeber to rejoice in the love that she so unselfishly shared with you and has left with you as a source of strength and courage along your journey.

    Mathew.. you i have known and admire for so long…. i know that you have what it takes to complete what your mom started in you so with all the love you have and their will be no more mourning …but instead rejoicing and peace.. that she set the foundation and you build upon it with the help of the almighty father who knows it all. continue to be strong …that is what she would wanrt you to do.. not just for you..but for your little brother jacob ..your daughter..and father in-law.

    You are loved and appreciated.. remember that she will be looking upon you from heaven…be strong.. I love you.

    Death is a sleep.. a sleep waiting for resurrection morning, when the dead in Christ shall rise first after recognizing their saviours voice. To the family I say contine to trust in the Lors and the Hope of eterenal life where we can see our loved ones again. To the church family, we need to continue to pray for the family and each other and just be strong in the Lord, if there was eve a time we needed Him it is now. one day death will be no more, pain no more, crying no more,, resurrection morning will put the devil to final shame. Lets all live the life to make it to Heaven

    Blessings! and accept my sympathy.

    It brings tears to my eyes to see Roma’s face and read that she has died, however, it is comforting to know that she is gone to reside with her Maker Jesus Christ where all suffering and pain is eternally gone. It is approximately 30 years since I saw Roma and remember her quiet and sweet spirit.

    May her brothers and sisters find courage and strength at this time of incredible loss. Roma grew up without a mother, but her aunt Cousin Edmay and her cousins Isaline, Ursuline and the others I cannot remember their names now, along with her step sister Felixia and the extended family did the best they could.

    Roma’s death reminds me of how time and tide waits for no man and that we must make our calling an election sure – love each other and be each other’s keeper.

    I am a very distant cousin of Roma but her father Cousin Alfred appreciated us a lot during his life in Woodford Hill when I was a little girl and I have fond memories of him helping my dad – either in the garden or fishing. Her Uncle Steve and Robelto were very kind as well. Uncle Steve especially was a prankster and made us laugh alot.

    Rest in peace Roma and I will see you in the morning. May God give your husband (another cousin of mine on my dad’s side), comfort to keep your memory alive. There we go again two young men without a mother. Thank God they are old enough to hold their own. Let us not forget the family when the funeral and burial is over. Violet you are loved and prayed for.

    God bless the village of Woodford Hill and the Commonwealth of Dominica.
