My Big Fat Jamaican Wedding

Counting down to the big day

Rest in peace, Uncle C

on April 18, 2012

Uncle C and Aunt Dolly enjoying the family reunion in Jamaica 2008.

Sadly, someone will not be joining us in Jamaica this year but I know he’ll be with us in spirit.  Uncle Horace “C” Hawthorne passed away last week while visiting family in Jamaica.  I am so honoured to have spent some time with Uncle C and fondly remember his visits up to Canada.  One of the senior elders in my family, he loved history, knowledge, culture, and family.  I think he would have given his “stamp of approval” on our wedding in Jamaica.  Uncle C seemed so strong and energetic and willing to offer an encouraging word.   Adam loved his “conscious vibes”.  We will certainly miss him a lot.
