I am sad to have to notify everyone here at IHD that we have lost our second oldest Moderator Patsy Aurora Barker affectionately known to most of you as "Bajaane". She went on to be with her Lord last evening. I have no other information to pass along at this time.

As soon as we learn more we will pass it on to you.

Rest peacefully our dear Bajaane, your work on earth is over and it is now time to reap your heavenly reward that the Lord has prepared for you.

I think I'm going to throw up.

This is horrifying news.

I hope she finds more peace with God than she did with a dialysis machine here on earth.

Bajanne's daughter Sam says the "Going Home Celebration in Tortola" is Tuesday the 14th of May in the Virgin Islands, then they will have a funeral and burial in Barbados.
This is the Tuesday service location:
St. Georges Anglican Church
170 Main St., Road Town
VG1110, British Virgin Islands
Sam posted on facebook:
"Please as we celebrate this vibrant life, please wear vibrant colours or african clothes. We are rejoicing that the Lord has taken my beautiful mother home. Thanks everyone. Please keep my family in your prayers during this difficult time."

I am trying to write a tribute to Bajanne to give to SAm for the ceremony.  I have no words, only tears, but here is what I have so far.  Please help me complete it. Send more words to describe her and ideas to be included.

All I have are tears.
No words to express the feeling of loss.
A special lady has gone from our lives.
Leaving a blank spot in my heart.

The machine didn't kill her, it was kidney disease, in all likelihood.
She had a strong belief in God and I believe she's in a better place.
