Caring thoughts and deepest sympathy to the Newton, Sawyers, Miguel, extended families and friends; in moments like these words are not enough to smooth the hurting and pains you have to endure. But one thing holds true from eternity past to the end, God will take care of you. Nadine lived a life pleasing to God and if we ever want to come face to face with her on the other side, we too must follow the footsteps left in the sand. Her prints are very visible to each of us and for this reason we weep and mourn her passing. May the legacy she left behind of love, peace, joy, lovingkindness, longsuffering and faithfulness never be forgotten. Let us therefore, prepare our hearts to meet her in glory where we all shall reign eternally; if we keep the faith.

My dear friend and former coworker Maxine. It was an absolute pleasure knowing you. I will never forget your infectious smile and warm demeanor. Yes you left us too soon but God knew that he needed you more in heaven than on earth. Heaven has received an angel and we know that you will be looking down on us all. Keep smiling my was a joy knowing you!

Her Life

School Days

March 30, 2019

Remembering the days we would be hitting the roads to Watt Town All Age School. Those were the days when we would run and walk really fast to get there on time to avoid Ms. Coy leather belt whipping. 

I was always the one running late, remembering who you would be calling me from out a pass or from Caledonia him, if I'm not coming.

We always look out for each other. Those were the days.

Eulogy for the life of the late

Maxine Alrica Sawyers.

Sunrise July 28, 1973- Sunset March 26, 2017.


An Author unknown states:

“At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built; Not what we got but what we shared; Not our competence but our character; and not our success but our significance. Live a life that matters live a life of love.”

Maxine Alrica Sawyers was born to Gilbert Sawyers and Merlina Newton on July 28, 1973. We were not told the minute or the details of her birth but I can just imagine the joy Miss Merlina felt upon the arrival of her baby girl. As a young child she was exposed to formal education at the Caledonia Basic School, then the Watt Town all age after which she went to Tarrant High School in Kingston. After Leaving Tarrant High school Maxine was motivated to pursue a course in Food and Beverage at the St. Monicas’ College in Ocho Rios. This she did with pride and joy knowing this was her career of choice which would allow her to earn an honest livelihood.

Maxine otherwise known as Nadine used the skills learnt at the St. Monicas’ College to gain employment as a chef in a Chinese Restaurant in Kingston and later as a Chef in Antigua.

Fate would have it that Maxine was the first of five children for both mother and father and she was the first to be taken by the creator. One may ask “Why?” The good book constantly reminds us that “The castle on a thousand hills is the Lords. Whenever He chooses he will take whichever one He desires.” This therefore behooves us through Psalm 90 Verse 12 “To ask of God to teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Maxine was a member of the City of Faith Church in Antigua; she attended and was a part of this same Holiness Christian Church in Caledonia. She was kind, humble, sociable and friendly. She was a mother a confidant and a friend. She was jovial her favorite song was “Someday I’ll go where Jesus is”. Maxine worked long and hard to take care of her family especially her only son Miguel Anthony Lee. She saw to his every need.

In 2015 Maxine was diagnosed with the deadly disease Cancer. She battled with it for these few years seeking divine and medical assistance but a cure was not to be.

On March 26, 2017 she made a transition from this life to the next. She has left to mourn her loss one son Miguel Anthony Lee, Mother Merlina Newton, Father Gilbert Sawyers, 2 sisters, 5 brothers, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and a host of other relatives and friends.

“A light from our household is gone

A voice we loved is still

A place is vacant in our hearts,

Which never can be filled.


Sleep on Maxine, sleep and take your rest.




Favorite Hymn: Saved By Grace - Fanny Crosby

April 27, 2017

Someday the silver cord will break

Someday the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing;
But, O the joy when I shall wake
Within the presence of the King!


And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story, saved by grace:
And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story, saved by grace.

Someday my earthly house will fall,
I cannot tell how soon ’twill be,
But this I know—my All in all
Has now a place with Him for me.

Or some day when my Lord will come,
And called to meet Him I’ll be blest,
He then will say to me, “Well done,”
And I shall enter into rest.

Someday, till then I’ll watch and wait,
My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
That when my Savior I will greet,
My faith will then be changed to sight.
