She was always a bubbly person. She was always a person who made fun, and helped people. It hasn’t changed and she told the Governor General’s aide on Friday when he came to visit that she loves him,” Sylvia told Barbados TODAY.

She said her mom worked until the age of 88 before a stroke forced her retirement.

She has been confined to a wheelchair at the Geriatric Hospital.
