    There was one thing which I ommited and that was to thank the staff at Dominica News Online for their very professional and heartfelt approach in dealing with the announcement.

    I made the announcement from London and felt that I was in Dominica at the time. The staff dealt with my request in a very professional, yet personal manner. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. You made it easy for us at a time when we needed compassion.

    God bless you all. xxxx

      Darling I can see that this has aroused an emotion in you because you feel that ‘Mama’ as we affectionately called Mum has been attacked by a heartless person. He/she is probably not even Dominican, we’re a God fearing, loving people. Let’s pray for ‘Anonymous’ whomever that is!!! Mama would say, ‘that’s my little lady’ She adored you!!!

      Love u xxxx

    The Bellot family conveys sincere condolences to the Joseph family on the passing of our dear friend MA Pierre, as we so affectionately called her. May her soul rest in peace and may family and friends be consoled with only the peace that God gives. Our prayers are with you. :cry:

      Many grateful thanks to the Bellot family. We knew you very well. Mr. Bellot lived just across the road from us in Frekeriksted St. Croix. We also lived not far from you when we lived in Kings Lane.

      We truly appreciate your warm and heartfelt words of comfort. Mum is at peace. God bless you all.

    Are you really saying that someone’s death, is making something out of nothing? I truly wish I was allowed to call you by the name I think you really are. Although, I have no idea who this Lady is, I think you should think twice before making such HURTFUL statements. I hope she hounds you the rest of your days.

      Errol many thanks for your kind support at this very sad time. You did not know our Mum but defended her dignity and that of her family. God bless you. Dominicans as a whole are a wonderful God fearing people. This person needs prayer.

    Wishing I could bring my mother back to her home town so her sisters, brothers and relatives can have a chance to pay their respect to my mother.

    May your soul rest in peace. It is surprising to me that they announce her death with regret. Death is a natural part of life regardless of the circumstances behind it. May her family find comfort in the legacy that she left behind.

      Dear Ovaltine, my favourite drink!!! The word regret was used instead of sadness. This is because we are really very sad that we’ve lost our Mum and we regret that she’s no longer with us in person. I’m sorry that the word regret seems to have upset you. God bless you.

      A daughter of the soil she was indeed! and a very proud one she was!!! In fact The Dominica flag was interned with Mum as she was laid to rest. She’s now at peace. God bless.

      It is interesting to know that she buried her husband and two children. May she rest in peace with Christ.

        Errol it’s so kind and decent of you to defend Mum’s memory in this way. One wonders why he remains ‘Anonymous???’ :oops:

        God bless you. Thank you.
