With passing of my wonderful and lovely mother, I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and condolences.

About mother, she suffered the untimely death and lost of a wonderful financial and secure provider: husband Mr. L.T. Graham in 1957. Later, with diminishing resources she and the children struggle in a poverty environment.

But, she never gave up - kept the children on a mostly straight path. Got a job at the Vine Ave laundry-o-mat as a seamstress. Had to add to the household financial struggle by taking in her ageing mother.

The elder son started working and provided substantial income to the household. Later, one by one, the other siblings followed as financial providers t
...o household.

Later, she was blessed to marry a wonderful mate Mr. Shedrack Holmes - who provided her love, companionship and securely for 17 years.

I will miss you mother,
