HAITI 2 YEARS LATER
As I close, I ask you to keep in
your thoughts and prayers the people of Haiti who are still
recovering from the most destructive and
deadliest earthquake [7.0 on the rector scale] that
struck their beloved island 2 years ago on January 12th.
It has been reported that this horrifying earthquake claimed the
lives of an estimated 316,000 lives. What a horrifying time it was for the people of Haiti, as
well as many across the nation who had family and friends living
and/or working in Haiti. Even if you didn't have any connection to Haiti;
you cried and prayed that many survivors would be found.
Hum, indeed everyone of us were glued to our TVs and tuned in to
every program that focused on Haiti truly hoping and praying
that many were found alive.
For some time now I have been
hearing and reading all sorts of stories about this Island, and
NONE ARE positive. I do however know that many are still suffering tremendously,
the citizens living standards are the poorest; and the funds
you...you...you and me donated to help the people of Haiti has
never reached their shores. Without a doubt, quite a bit
MUST BE DONE...NEEDS TO BE DONE for the people of Haiti, and
(overall) on the island - specifically in the city the earthquake
destroyed [Port-au-Prince.] Many of us stepped up to the
plate and donated, plus raised funds through our respective
Organizations for the people of Haiti; and it sickens me that very
little money reached the people; and very little has
been done to re-build Port-au-Prince, as well as re-build the
lives of the ones suffering in Port-au-Prince.
Just this morning my husband Todd
was sharing with me a conversation he had with his friend (who
was born and grew up in Haiti.)
This friend indicated he had visited 3 times after the
earthquake struck; and from what he observed: most of the
damage are concentrated in the popular city Port-au-Prince...it
was nothing like he remembered it...in fact is was practically
gone. He further indicated: the rest of the country seemed to be fair and unaffected...pretty much how
he left it before the earthquake. Todd's
friend was excitedly anticipating traveling back to Haiti to visit his
family a week after they spoke. We definitely intend to
hook up with him to get an update on what he experienced, the
progress, etc.; which will directly be coming from the eyes of someone who was born
there, grew up there, still has family there, and love the place
continue being hopeful for the people of Haiti and
continue to keep them in your prayers.
May the Haitian People's lives, which is obviously full
of sorrow and despair find peace and happiness.
2 DEAR PEOPLE WE LOST A YEAR AGO
We want to take
this opportunity to let our friend Wayne Cuffy and his family know
that they are in our thoughts, and will always be.
Gosh, the lost of their beloved son Wayne Channin Cuffy
a year ago was devastating and pretty
overwhelming for The Cuffy family, as well as for so many of us in
the entire community.
Hum, while talking
to Mr. Cuffy a few days ago, I couldn’t help but mention that I
knew the past year-2011 was very difficult for him and his family. And
the words he relayed to me was heartfelt.
It was clear that it was absolutely the most difficult year of his
life, and he expressed how much he missed his youngest son
One sentence that sticks in my mind that Mr. Cuffy made during
our conversation was “whenever the family and I get ready to
go somewhere, we are lost because “Chan” is not here...it
feels like we are driving with a wheel missing. Yes
Susan, we miss him and it has been an extremely difficult year,
especially dealing with the loss of Chan.”
Oh dear our heart
absolutely goes out to the entire Cuffy family, and we pray that love
and strength will continue to heal their hearts and lessen the
pain they are clearly still feeling.
This Sunday, January 15, 2012, a memorial service will
be held for Wayne Channin Cuffy. It
will take place at St. Mary’s
Church, located at 7301 Annapolis Road, Landover, Maryland 20784.
Mr. Wayne Cuffy indicated he and his family will welcome,
and appreciate all those who will be able to attend
this special memorial mass.
we would like to let our friend Keith Preddie know he too is in
our thoughts. The sudden passing of his dear...dear friend
Vonda Acty a year ago had left him heartbroken. I am glad
that he is trying his best to move on with life, the traveling to
his place of birth Trinidad so frequently; and him enjoying
his kids and grandkids. Not to mention his new
love...LOL! We wish you the very best Mr. Preddie, and we
are glad you are moving along quite nicely in life.
closing we must wish our friend Teddy of Teddy Bear Promotions a
very HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Additionally, we wish you...Teddy much,
happiness, success and simply all the best.
