Dear Barbados Free Press,
My name is Jo and I live in the UK. I would like to thank you for your informative and true daily reports on the tragic incident of the collapse of the Codrington Family apartment.
Donavere Codrington’s Uncle Atlee and his family live here in the UK now, and for many years I lived with them and had a daughter, Calise, to Donavere’s cousin, Richard. Nearly every year we would come and visit Donavere and his family, and stay for a few weeks at his Grandmother Sheila’s house.
If you could post this, I hope all Bajans who read this will come to know that Donavere, his sisters Crystal and Nicole, his mother Margaret, Grandma Sheila and the rest of his family are a wonderful, welcoming family. They have true faith which I really believe will serve everyone involved in this well, and I am honoured to be affiliated with this family, especially for my baby girl to share their surname. Don is (I use present tense in hope) as strong as an ox, and he’ll protect those he loves – if not in body then most definitely in spirit. He always took care of me when I came over and never treated me any different (despite the fact that local residents to Westbury Road called me ‘flamingo’ as I go pink in the sun!).
Idon’t speak of Cassandra as I didn’t know her – although I pray for her, her children and her mother. I pray for Donica and Don’s son from a previous relationship – Donico. I hope Barbados does too.
Many thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully publish this.
With best wishes
