My aunt Winsome was very precious and special to me. She would often remind me of the times what she used to spank me, even though she was only 12 years older than I am. We had some wonderful times in Kington, Jamaica when my parents left us in her care. My fondest memory of her is her laughter. She had a roaring, infectious kind of laughter. My aunt will always be remembered as one who cared about the well being of her children and grandchildren. She expected the best, and insisted that everyone made every effort to be their best. Rest now, dear auntie, and, sleep peacefully until you hear the sound of the trumpet. It will be a great getting up morning!
Milton Tomlinson (Eddie), Nephew
