    Please family members we need to pay more attention to the elderly and persons who live alone. Yes we have our own life to live but a phone call or checking up on them is important. Every day check up won't hurt us. If we can't get in contact with them try something else call somebody don't just take things for granted.

    Condolences to his family and friends may his soul rest in peace.

      When you get to be a certain age, you become one of the forgotten ones and a dog is better off than you.

    That some of the elderly have to be tossed aside like a piece of thrash in their golden years. What we forgot is that one day we will be in the exact spot. There is a elderly man that lives not to far from me, family members pass by in their cars and don’t even take the time to see how he is doing or if he needs anything. This man is no family of mine but I check on him in the mornings on my way with breakfast and in the afternoons when I get home, I would take him some dinner. When I go to the supermarket, I always pick him up a little something, he love Strawberry ice cream and I always make sure he have his Strawberry ice cream. What saddens me most is the elderly throw aways as I call them, have worked their hands to the bones walking from Sea Cows Bay to Road Town on dirt roads before any roads were cut just to make less than a dollar for the Month. Just check in on your elderly neighbors, hey, how are you doing today, everything is ok? do you need anything? All it takes is a few seconds and compassion towards another fellow man.

    We are living in a society of heartless. Non careing people. I’ts not my problem, as long as it is not me. People here is so uncaring and lost. I walk into any business place and I always say hello. 95% of the time they look at me like I am stupid but I always say have a good day or enjoy the rest of your day when I leave.

    Some of these families only check with their elderly when their Social Security or pension money come in and the take it from them. Wicked set of family most of them are. Hope they do not have children or grand children. BECAUSE CRAPPO SMOKE ARYO PIPE WHEN ARYOU GET OLD. And come see them walking the road likes Ms. Popumla, prim and proper. STRUPESSSS.
