To my late brother in law, Chelsford: In Heaven there ain't no rum punch. In Heaven there ain't no beer, so we gotta drink it here. Here's a glass to you! Hope you see your sister in law, Stella, and you two can celebrate birthdays. Play a game of cards with her and share a bowl of cou cou and salt fish. Peace ✌.

To all the family and friends of Chelsford.

On behalf of my wife , myself and family, we send our deepest condolences and sympathy.
Chelsford was my first cousin and we grew up together in Westmoreland.
I immigrated to England and he to Canada. We last met in 2019/2020 when we were last in Barbados.
Thanks to Whats app. and Messenger we were able to keep in contact.
It saddened us to hear of his passing.
We did not know of his suffering but we know that he is now peaceably at rest and may he continue to REST IN PEACE.
He will always be remembered by us.
Our best wishes to all the family at this sad time.
