|Let the memory of Masie be with us forever|
"Happy Belated Birthday Mama! I missed you sooo very much, I still shed tears for you, but I know you are in a better place, and I am asking God to comfort me! I would feel so empty without you when I visit home. Your present will always be missed, your smile, hugs,laughter, old memories and company cannot be replaced!! I just thought you will always be there when we visit, don't how I would ever cope with you not being there, but with God on my side, I know he would help me through it all!! Please watch over me and my family! Mama, we would always love you, Till we meet in Heaven, Rest In Peace my dear Mama!!!! Your loving daughter Sonia & Family!"
as I walk through the journey of life,
I remember how you helped me to grow
with love, truth, and honesty.
I remember how you helped me to choose the right path
with values, morals, and self worth.
I remember how you gave me dreams
with hope and confidence.
As I remember,
I pray to be a parent like you,
to shape my children into strong adults,
full of hopes and dreams.
You made me who I am today,
and I will always remember you in life's passings
for no one could touch my life as you have.
Remembrance in life's passing is the truest form of love one can give, for a memory should never die and a love should live forever in the heart of us. HAPPY 92nd Birthday
Randolph & Family January 2015"
"Until It Is Time For Us To Meet In Heaven, We Love You Mama!
You were and still are my mother who gave me life. You were my friend and buddy; we shared so much, even our birth month; we live together for most of my life. We cried together when bad things hit us and we laughed together during the good times, and oh we could sure laugh!. I loved you then and I love you now. I will always love you. Your faith in God was forever present in your life and for most all of my life. Even though my faith left me at times, I don’t think yours ever did you always encourage me to trust in God, never give up no matter what. I take comfort in the knowledge that I know without a doubt that you are with your precious Father God now.
I am hurting now and I know I will hurt for some time to come. We were so close and I miss you terribly. My head tells me you are happy, you are free of all pain and sorrows; and you can now hear me and the family telling you of our love, but my heart hasn't quite accepted this. Now it is time for me to bid you a final goodbye. Go and rest high on that mountain with your Lord, until I see you again, when I meet with you and our Lord one day. He opened his arms to welcome you on that afternoon you passed away from this world and you just walked into his embrace. We did not know your spirit will soar away that day, because your body was failing you. I am so blessed and it gives me great joy to know I was able to tell you for that last time “I LOVE YOU”a couple of hours before your spirit soar away. Until it is time for us to meet in Heaven, remember that we love you Mama, we have always loved you. You were and still are so very precious to us! You will always be missed!
All our Love,
Loving Daughter Sonia Liburd & Family"
"I could recall when I was a child thinking that I had a bigger family than I actually did because I had so many aunts and uncles who was just close friends of my mother. Auntie Masie as she was affectionately called by me and my 7 other siblings death was a hard blow. We couldn't ask for a better aunt. Her strong work ethics and personality help Mom to shape our life. No matter the situation Aunt Masie had a positive attitude and became friends instantly with everyone she comes in contact with. She was loved by everyone who knew her. She was one of my role model and I was happy to listen whenever she had advice for me. She was always there for my Mom and us whether by phone or in person. Mom and Aunt Masie were so close that they also give two of their children the same name Bernell and Bernard. We will miss her more than words can say. I am glad that we got to spend so much time together and were so close (actually I think I was her favorite). I will miss her dearly and will never forget her. Her memories will live on in all of us forever.
Sleep in perfect peace Auntie
From: Bernell Ruthanne and the rest of the Sutton Family"
I still can't get over the shock that you have gone on to the great beyond but God knows best. The last time that I visited you, you were so talkative, jovial and full of vitality. Will miss your sweet smile, your contagious laughter and your kind loving heart. Rest in peace my dear.
Lornette “Piola” Roper
The departure of Mrs. Masie Hanley from this terrestrial plane to her heavenly home is no great surprise to me. I surely know that someday she will be going home because we are only here for a period of time to make our calling and election sure. She has live a very long age, thank God for a woman like her. Whenever I want to get a good laugh of old days gone by I will just call her up and we will talk and laugh together her laughter was the best medicine for me. It will always stand out predominantly like the flaming sun, self proclaiming. Sleep on Masie. Until the resurrection morn.
I didn’t expect our telephone conversation on that stormy Saturday morning would be the last time I would hear your bubbly voice and that infectious cackle. We chuckled when you said “Ms One Oh! Bernard gone and me know ball this time, praise the lord a feel good now” I will miss Masie dearly but I have comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and her heart and soul is at peace. Sail away my smiling queen to your peaceful shore and be at rest.
Floretta “Miss One” Hanley"
"HAPPY 91st BIRTHDAY MAMA!
Dearest mama we all love you so very much
Your spiritual conviction and love has made you...our internal touch
As all families experience: through out the years there have been many ups,
and sometimes one too many downs,
But a more loving family cannot be found.
We thank you mama for all you continue to be to us
Your years of caring has made it so easy for us to trust.
As a wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law and friend
If any of us had a problem it was on you we could always depend.
We’re praying that God will bless you for many, many more years,
Our hearts are overflowing, as our eyes are happy with tears.
We know you would rather not have any of this fuss,
But dearest mama we want you to know how important
you are to each one of us.
If we were to describe you, we would say your family
and close friends mean the world to you,
We are here today because we feel that way about you too.
We give you the flowers of our hearts as we hold each other’s hands,
We come together with love as we all proudly stand.
Happy Birthday Mama: Happy Birthday Grandma with all our Love
May God continue to bless you with longevity, happiness,
health and his blessing from above:
Love Always and forever,
Sonia & Family"
I had a goodnight rest, I already take my tablets eat my breakfast, Randolph tell me force it down it’s good for me and I have to eat to live. I’m truly feeling good, she said they are packing to go back to the states and Bernell will go with them to St. Kitts to see them off.
I am waiting to visit the doctor for a check up on Wednesday, she Mention to Sonia she also mention that she was praying that they have a safe trip seeing the weather was bad they laughed and talk and she said that she love her and Sonia said I love you too. The above coversation was repeated again to Randolph and his wife.
As her son Bernard and family left the house for St. kitts to travel back to the USA she walked them to the door hugging and kissing them expressing that she glad she had the chance to see her grandson Jamal whom she never see and his mom Charlene Bernard’s wife,
I am praying for you all she said.
Forty five minutes later upon arriving in St. Kitts she called to find out if they reach and they told her the sea was rough. she said I know I done say so but I was praying for you all safety.
Five minutes later her husband Godfrey called and said she took ill.
the family then travelled to Randolph house where they will over night, and in a ten minutes time as they were about to travel to Brinstone Hill Godfrey called again and said he is calling her but no answer and she was not blowing (Breathing) Emotions then took over, as calls were made to all the other
children at home and abroad. Especially Sonia and Wyomi.
Jamella rush to her aid and said she has gone , she look so peaceful.
Nurse Bernadette (Bonnie) Jeffers a fine lady who always at ma side along with her eldest daughter a nurse by profession, upon arrival said she has truly passed and was waiting on the Doctor’s announcement.
These are some of the final words uttered by Mama to family members who spoke to her during the final hours of her life.
A woman of God who loves to pray and inquire daily as to how every one was doing even if she have to call your cell from the house phone.
Her mind was sharp and she knows every one of her children birthdates.
Thank you Jesus for her long life with us.
Husband, Children, Grand children & In laws who witness the above statement."
"You came into my life in June 1986, you were more than a mother to me
and a grandmother to your grandchildren Randy & Randolph Jr..
That sweet cackling laugh and prayer will remain with us forever, so sleep on and take your well needed rest.
Randolph Snr.(Son) Doreen (Daughter in law) Randy, Jr & Sally Grand & Grand in law. We will always love you."
