    Congratulations to Mr. Bully. Thank you for the many years of sharing your talents with those before me and for all those you are still inspiring. I was fortunate to work with you and Steve Hyacinth and a production like no other in the 90s when you brought to DA theatre the Broadway play “Once on this Island”. Thanks to all the hard work of Steve to help me find my acting skills, Pearl Christian for further expanding my lungs to sing those songs and Daryll Philip to complete it with dance, it was one of my best experiences in life. Thank you Mr. Bully. You are loved, blessed to have a beautiful woman at your side for life and in all that you both have done, you have set an example for how one should live. We love you and always will.

    Admin – is Alwyn Bully sick? he looks frail and suffering.

    ADMIN: You are not the only one to make that observation – he is not well. However, there has been no public statement from the family (that we are aware of). We have chosen to respect their privacy.

    An award is good; nevertheless, in the case of Alwin, we need to erect a monument of the man somewhere on the island; I suggest it would be appropriate to name something after this gallant of a man.

    Maybe a street could be named after him; if there was a drama theater on the island, it would be appropriate to name it: ‘The Alwin Bully Theater.’

      I do not suggest complete twilight years, but as the theory goes “once a man twice a child.”

    I wish you all the best including happiness too.

    Steve; (Manno) good to see you, I spoke with your uncle about twenty minuets ago!
