    To the Nibbs, Blyden, and Leslie Family , so many of us are thinking of you in this heavy-hearted time and just wanted to take time to wish you comfort in the days to come; and to our kind librarian - colleague, Jan- Dear Jan: I would be remissed if I did not acknowledge how woeful you must be; because Joyce and Neil were two awesome people I know that complimented you so beautifully; and I too will miss them but forever will cherish the many memories , the smiles, and the pep in their steps; as footprints, these Virgin Islanders walked the walk and embraced other cultures- in the sand - washing out to sea, as peace meets Free!
