Linda - Exiled Jamaican

by Linda Williams-Dornan, Nee Lopez
(Macclenny,Florida,USA)


I was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and lived there till the late 70's when things became dangerous for me, and had to go into exile in the United States.

Although I have citizenship in the US, I still hanker for my beautiful country.

I miss the curried goat, and rice & peas, Tastee Patties, coco bread, roasted breadfruit, ackee and salt-fish, June plum, jack-fruit, nesberries, Bombay mangoes, ginger beer, and white rum.

I am now seeking contact with my maternal aunt: Delores Bernard, and her son Vernon. The last time I saw them was two weeks before the 9/11 tragedy in the twin towers, I was there to bury my mum, Rosetta Scott of blessed memory.

My aunt used to work for the Forestry Dept. in Port Antonio, Portland.

I googled Jamaican search for family, and came upon this site.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me find them again. It has been way too long, as I had to focus on keeping my job, and missed out on the closeness of family, but now that I am disabled, I have more time on my hands.

Wellesley's Note

Hi Linda,
Welcome! Glad you found us on your google search!

We are a community of like-minded Jamaican enthusiasts that share and look out for each other. It's interesting you listed so much of the stuff you miss about Jamaica - did you realize that brag about/ and have links to almost all of those on this website - talk about like minded :-)

You didn't say what triggered the reason for your migration in the late 1970s, but that is a non-issue at this point, I'd love to have you reconnect to your loved ones. I think you already posted something in that forum (good), but I'll also do whatever I can on this side to help.

Stay close my friend!And keep your chin up!
And again, a hearty Jamaican WELCOME (back) to you!

Regards,
Wellesley Gayle
