ForeverMissed
There are no coincidences
To who you belong to in this life
We are saddened and heartbroken
But as her children we are also eternally humbled
That we came to her in this life
That we embarked on this journey with her
To fulfill our purpose
And be her legacy
Through her
Physically, metaphysically and universally
We find solace and joy
That she lived a full life
That she found love and
That we were all she wanted

Gardenias have become my favorite flower since laying you to rest with one in your hair. Today I give you a metaphorical gardenia incense that will burn for you. Love you always Mommy.

When mom came to visit me in Ghana the first time as a Peace Corp Volunteer

Shared by Natalie Leblanc on April 26, 2021
I was so overjoyed and counting down the days to her arrival. I actually drew a calendar on my wall with charcoal in anticipation of her arrival. I also knew she was bringing one of my siblings and I was so excited about that too. For they couldn't or didn't write and I would use e-mail. Anyway mom came off the plane and I was waiting for her with my friend Vicky who happened to be doing an internship in Ghana while in medical school and she and I did Marie Brooks Caribbean Dance Theater together....I made a sign that said Yi Maraaba Mommy and Mandisa - which means Welcome in Dagbani, the language of the Dagomba people in Northern Ghana. I actually thought Mandisa was Mireille because of her size from the distance - but it was Mandisa. I was so excited to see her too. I had gotten her a dress made from flour sacks and got mom a dress made from African fabric a mumu of sorts....We stayed at one of the 5 star hotels in Accra, the capital and then I think we went to a hotel that was in the lush part of the country. We went hiking through the rainforest and we also went to the slave castles...actually I think we went to the slave castles first and then to the rainforest. We then went to Kumasi - where we enjoyed the food because it is most like Caribbean food - her favorite dish was red red - made with Black eyes peas in a spicy sauce with pepper and tomatoes with fried sweet plantains.
