Celebrating an Abaco Centenarian; One Hundred Years of a Beautiful ...


By Kevin Barton
A woman for all seasons,
A woman of distinction;
Yes, a virtuous woman was
Sister Violet Weech.
This woman of God held her own
And she was well known—
Sister Violet Weech.
A brilliant mind is what we found in Sister Weech,
And those who knew her can testify;
The truth they will not deny,
That she was good at what she did.
Sister Weech touched our hearts and lives in many ways,
And also put on some wonderful plays.
A virtuous, loving mother with a heart of gold;
A beautiful spirit to behold was
Sister Violet Weech.
If she asked you to perform a part,
It was hard to say no to her;
And for others it was a great joy and pleasure
To work with Sister Weech.
We remember ‘The Old Ship of Zion’
And many other productions put on by Sister Weech,
And people came from near and far to participate.
I know that Sister Weech touched people in many ways,
And her memories will always linger in our hearts and minds forever.
Well done, our Sister.
Rest in peace.

Be Faithful

In these last days who among us would take a stand
And to God be a faithful woman or man.
To do the Father’s every will
Even when we make a spill.
But when we confess our sins He clears us up
And the love of the Saviour will never stop.
Your love for the Father is oh so strong
And in His will you can’t go wrong.
This is for all – father, mother and child
God will lead you through every mile.
So let the fire of the Holy Spirit burn bright in you
And fight the good fight of faith.
So let us be a faithful woman or man
And in Christ Jesus take a stand.
And when the work on earth is done,
He will reward us one by one.



A beautiful, glowing gem and a woman of great value is..my mother

Her love for her family and her love for her friends,

It’s like her love has no end and that’s my mother!

Her devotion to church and to her Lord,

No one will cause her to lose her reward.

That’s my mother!

Faithful, loving, true and kind is this sweet dear mother of mine.

Strength and wisdom is what she possesses, friends l am telling you my mother’s the best!

These words I penned may bring a tear because our loved ones may not be here.

So these words maybe weighty and true about this woman of God I’m introducing to you.

My mother!

For some, your mothers may not be here physically,

But the memories linger in your hearts and minds

And they will never be forgotten.

May God continue to bless and keep your mothers always.
