Editor’s note: Jeffa passed away in the U.S. on Tuesday (Oct. 2, 2018) after giving birth (SEE STORY). She was an employee of St. Jude Hospital and was a very active member of the Vieux Fort community, especially in sports, culture and pageantry.
The untimely news of your passing came as a shock wave washing over the community of Vieux-Fort leaving everyone who knew you in disbelief because it’s almost impossible to fathom the thought of you not being here in the flesh.
Like, how can that shy yet wide affectionate smile which warmed the hearts of many be no more?
The kind and fighting spirit, positive attitude, cool demeanor, and community leader.
How are family and friends to accept this grave lost?
Who is now going to take up the role that you once held; from encouraging the young ballers to go out with a winning attitude, the young ladies to embrace their authentic self and walk across any stage with poise and the upcoming future generation that you have helped raised and given so much of yourself to, expecting nothing in return?
It’s often said that the good die young and so it begs the question of whether this world has become too much of an ugly place for someone with a beautiful heart as yours?
By taking away the pillar that holds our community together, is this God’s way of telling us that we need to be more humble, kind and appreciative of our brothers and sisters?
Many questions left unanswered, many hearts left broken but in the midst of this chaos, you gifted the world with a beautiful baby girl which leaves no doubt in the minds of those who knew you that the Lord would make sure that she inherits your big and loving heart.
The Lord took you away for reasons unknown. Left a void in the hearts of all those who knew you while giving them your baby to fill it.
He decided that your work on this earth was done but for your community, it has just begun for they are now given a chance to raise your precious little girl.
We say to you
F….or we your
F….amily and friends will ensure that your baby girl knows how much of an
A…mazing human you were.
B…elieve that your legacy will be an
E…verlasting reminder of your
S..weet soul and the
S….ensible human being who lived an
This isn’t goodbye but rather see you later until we meet again!
