DJANGO, MY CONDOLENCES.

Bai, me condolences regarding you Ma passing.

 

Its been over twenty years for me and I still think of me Ma almost every day.

Going to the farm with her on our donkey cart for mangoes, that she sold at the market to send us to school.

Some times we don't fully appreciate our mothers, until they are no longer around.

Thank you Tola..we can never forget our mothers,with

her passing i started to recall when i was growing up i

am always by her side i never leave her,i am her eldest

son and was very special to her.

 

My mom was a great person took care of her parents

and some of her sibling,had to leave school at the age

of 13 due to my grand father illness,took care of her

younger sister's children after she passed away.

 

I was around her until she was 64 yrs,due to

migration and started a new life for children and

myself i could not be there.I have failed for not being

around the last few years of her life,i was told by my

sister my ma took the last breath hearing the sound of

my name and even told them if i can't go to bid her

farewell i am forgiven,that's my ma a the greatest.

 

 

Here is a picture when she received her land title

for land she squatted on,the minister was my eldest

son school mate.

I like dat 'rumaul'.I always admire that head-dress  and would photograph it at every opportunity. Most recently at a funeral in Albion.   

As children, we used to wear our mother's rumaul and parade around the house, while  she try to catch us.

 

I was away for about 20 years  when my mother died, but I did see her about  a dozen times. My overseas wife met her, but our children did not.

 

I like the typical Guyanese background scene of banana leaves in the phootgraph. Many people use walls as backgrounds, but I like nature.

I just did a photo-shoot in the park with flowers of a traditionally dressed Spanish family.       

My condolences to you Django.

 

Like you my mom passed away a couple years ago in Guyana and I was not able to see her. My passport was out of date and while in line to try for an emergency one, I nearly passed out due to kidney stone attack. I thought it better to stay in Canada.

I am glad I saw here a short while before she passed away. She's still there in mind and spirit, so will yours.

Attending funerals in Guyana or overseas, is an important part of our life. Sometime the mental consequences could be severe for not attending. I keep my passport active at all times.

 

I was not able to attend the funerals of two sisters and my father, due to flights, but the consequences of not attending a sister's funeral who was murdered by three guys, had the most serious effect in my life and it took me almost 20 years for a somewhat closure. She was my favourite sister and it still bothers me today.

 

I am sorry Cain, its hard not being able to attend a mother's funeral.

The day before surgery recently, I was not able to attend my brother's funeral in the US, but we previously spent hours on the phone, so it  did not feel too badly. I was able to attend his memorial service months later.
