    I can’t help but wonder if it’s the diet in Barbados because those breads and such be full of sugar. I know bajans could eat some pastries. Just something to think about, really sad to keep hearing this happening

      Excuse me Ashanda Coward but read the comment clearly before responding and then add another comment. You would find words like “I wonder” and “keep hearing this happening”. No disrespect to the family of the lady, mat she rest in peace. Commenting on reading about people just dropping down so, it was regular on the Internet not too long ago and was a big topic

      The lady who died was 74, she lived a long and productive life, you cannot put her in the category of persons under 30 or under 50 who die without fuffering from any apparent ailments.

    Erma was a wonderful lady who worked very very hard. The students of Foundation School will surely miss her. My
    aunt Mrs. Muriel Cox sold snacks and fruits at Christ Church High School while Erma operated the school canteen there for many years. They shared a beautiful friendship. When Ch.Ch. High School closed its doors they relocated to Foundation School next door to continue their trade. My aunt is now deceased. Erma RIP.

      She was lady who fed many at the Christ Church High School without looking back at money. What a gift the children have lost may her soul rest in peace.

    Barbados centenarians love all kinds of food just saying and we can brag about that ,we all must die at some time so the alarm at death is unrealistic.Nevertheless I am sorry for her family and friends lost RIP.
