Giving Thanks

My Party

Thanks to everyone who braced the rain and came to celebrate this milestone in my life. My journey through life so far has been a good one with much to thank God for. All I can say right now is "Thank God, I made it to 50". Thanks for the gifts, cards, drinks, food, love and support. I felt turely loved and appreciated.

  • To Horatio Bernard - Thank you my Spartan brother for extending your trip, Sparta was represented by you and DEB. I hope you had a good time. When you get back to life in the USA, my wish is that Myrtle Beach crosses your mind every hour of your 8 hour workday. Thank you Ray for always supporting me and TLC Africa. I love you Bou...

  • To Vernon Scott, Thanks for the pointers and for helping me coordinate some of this stuff. You were right everything fell into place.

  • To Oso and George, Thanks for Myrtle Beach. It is one of my favorite spots in Liberia and it was the perfect location for my party. Extra work was done in my honor. Gentlemen, thank you, I appreciate it and the beach is even more beautiful.

  • To Albertain the desserts, and punch were a hit. Vernon was right, you got it going girl. Thank you.

  • To Bendoria, thank you baby girl, the fry rice, bake fish and pepper soup were excellent. You and your friends did real good.
