Mr Cuffe (Daddy to us) you will be sadly missed. We will miss your bright smile and funny stories. Wes will also miss his gardening buddy, always sharing ideas and taking pride in their achievements. It was a shock to hear of your passing but we take comfort in knowing you are in a better place with your beloved Mavis. Rest in peace Daddy.

To A Wonderful Man, My First Cousin/Uncle Ernest Cuffe,
As a young girl back in Jamaica, I remember when you and my father would take me to the farm and then down to the Great river where we would spend the day catching shrimps together. The many lovely memories of you walking me to school and making coconut drops, which you would try to hide from me, but I could always find them. As you left Jamaica to go to England for new adventures, I missed you as you were like a father to me. I was soon to follow you to England, where we would continue to strengthen our amazing bond as well as enjoy many great family get togethers. You were always there to support me and provide guidance in everything I did in my life. With my father already passed away I chose no other than you to walk me down the aisle and give me away on my wedding day. As we were driving to the church, I will always remember, you turned to me and said “Beryl everything will be alright. Just do the things you were taught and God will take care of the rest”. You were always so kind and loving to me and Leon and great uncle to my kids, Angela and Genevien who adored you. Although we have lived far a part for many years, we always stayed in touch and talked regularly and visit one another to share our many stories and always to have a few jokes as we loved to laugh together. You have always been an inspiration to me throughout my life.
I thank God for your wonderful life. A heartfelt condolence to all the family and your beautiful children.
I know you will be one of God’s Chosen Angles sitting at the right hand of his thrown.
You will be truly missed by many but you will always live in our hearts; my heart is broken with out you. Sleep on my wonderful brother until we meet again, rest in peace uncle Ernest we will always love you.
Love always and forever Beryl, Leon, Angela, Ken, Ikale, Genevien, Dave, Zurie and Zhale.

News of your passing was too shocking for words.

We all know that one day we must all go but that does not make the pain of losing you any easier to bear.

Mum has lost a dear brother.
A brother who always looked out for her and looked after her.

We have lost an uncle who was very much a father figure to us all.

Uncle Ernest was the one we confided in when we had problems.

Uncle Ernest was the one we went to when we couldn’t get what we wanted out of mum and dad.

Uncle Ernest you had a big heart.
You always had time for all of us.

Dearest loving uncle, we will miss you terribly.

Every time we see a wrestling match on the tv, we will remember those amazing Saturday afternoons in the 70s with you and aunt Mavis in front of the television watching Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks, Mick McManus.
The shouting at the television.
The raised fists!

Whenever we see a flask of Johnny Walker we will raise a glass to you.

Whenever we think of Sherwin Road, the memories, the laughter the family dramas, they will always come flooding back to us.

Every time a star twinkles in the sky we will remember you.

Rest in peace.
Your work on earth is done.
It is time to take your rest

#Mitchell Family Sherwin Road Crew

Grandad, you will be forever missed. I feel blessed to have been able to spend much time with you. In the week prior to your passing, a friend mentioned to me that even today you are someone's ancestor and that made me think about the huge moves you've made and how all of your children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren have flourished.

I am going to miss all your stories of growing up in Jamaica. Hopefully you can practice dominos in "Timbuk" and you might have a chance of beating me when we meet again. One love 🖤
