Jamaica My Favorite Place To Visit

by Frank Tatem
(West Palm Beach Florida 33417 USA)

What a sweet surprise? Frank, One of my most ardent followers since my site inception in 2007, just reached out to me.

I have not heard from him for oh so long! He certainly made my day.


It has been a while since we talked last.
I see that you still have my winning picture from 2009 on your site!

Makes me happy and proud! I hope all is well with you and your family.

That was my last visit in 2009, and I so miss Jamaica, my favorite place to visit. It was my second home! I just turned 76 years old and I don't get to travel very much anymore. My income has changed quite a bit which prevents me from doing some things.

But I still have some fond memories and photos to remind me of how blessed I have been!

I was trying to see if my friend Kate is still doing business with her site I would love get in touch with her to see what she has been doing. If you could look into that for me I would really appreciate it.

Well I want to wish you and your family a most Blessed Christmas and to have a Blessed New Year ahead.
Until we talk again God Bless.

RESPONSE: by Wellesley

Hi Frank!
Great to hear from you my friend! Happy 76!

Yes, it has been a while. You certainly made my day!

And yes, I still proudly keep your winning photo - and it will be there forever my friend; your '23rd visit to Jamaica!'.
That was my fourth Jamaica photo contest, and a fun one - love it!

For persons who might be curious what we are talking about, they can see your photo (and entry) here as well as the contest results here.

Regarding the lady from Irie Finds? Here name is Kaysia. I spoke to her a few months ago. She told me that business is been managed by someone else now, looks like it was sold. If you still want to speak to her let me know offline, I'll give you her number, just to protect her privacy.

Thanks also for the great wishes my friend, and all the best to you and your for this season and beyond.

By the way, I just checked and it looks like you fell off my mailing list as well :-(

Again, great hearing from my pal, please don't stay away this long again :-)

Happy 76 A gift many do not get

Dear Frank,
Thanks to Wellesley I got to see your letter and winning entry in the photo contest. Wow, you were on your 23rd trip that year!

I'm 73 now and look younger than I did 25 years ago when I first came to Jamaica, a blessing!

I'm sure it's the warm weather, alkaline water, fresh food, uplifting vibes, friendly people, and of course my loving husband I met then that all make up my Fountain of Youth. "A day is not wasted when a memory is created."

It sounds like you have many, many from Joyous Jamaica.
