Haydain you always called to tell me.
Where jacksoul band gigs happening location.
As far as Montreal to Vancouver in Canada.
Even got your card from Japan July 27, 2007.

August 3, 2009 accident stopped me cold.
Communication continued in Sacred Silence.
jacksoul band members believed in sojourner.

Mission Statements posted at your bedside.
Cause and effect recoup principles foremost.
My son jacksoul inseminate world visions.

You motivated momsy in jacksoul sessions specials.
Spoke with passions momsy's ethics black history.
Principals of mother's choice of musical influences.

Napoleon Hill and Universal Unity acceptance of all.
My son for your everlasting love Peace unfolds.
Many names for God you never query ACTS.

Yaz and Michaela Hudson Neale marital family.
Bye bye bye "Little Bird You Are Welcome" lullaby.
You remembered I will continue to hum peacefully.

jacksoul R&B band Lead Singer

Forever in MOMSY body, mind and soul thoughts.
My only man child is at rest November 22, 2009.

My First Easter 2010

Nah man, No Chocolate rabbits. Easter 2010
Easter Home tullum yes, man ah just made some manl.
What chocolate rabbit? No, ah ha, chocolate tea too booth.
Market time, buy a real instant rabbit, make a curry stew.

It dawned on me for the first time today
    "ah doh have no son."
Wait a minute Haydain is not with us to invite me to his home.
Haydain has gone over yonder playing Savannah concerts..

No box of turtles from him this Easter for
    "meh to chew."
Nor visiting his home for aperitifs of "various types of cheese."

Turtles are my favorite everyday chocolates nuts to chew..

I then went to the freezer took out some blended coconut.
Got the Molasses out added it to the coconut and sugar.
Made my own Trinidad and Tobago molasses tullum.
   "FoH soh."

I wondered as I stirred the candy bubbling up Volcanic glub, "
   ah well! he is gone".
Haydain is over yonder in his heaven and so he like Christ is risen.
Here I am in this Hamilton heaven enjoying life making sweeties

My daughter who lives with me could not wait for coconut treats.
As soon as I completed this new found hobby.
    Home made candies.
Before yoh say "chocolate jack rabbit" been snacking on molasses tullums.

There is light at the end of this heavenly tunnel.
    Haydain's illuminations.
These molasses macaroon that is what it is called in Canada.
Molasses is sweet in the mouth soon will come out at the end.

CBC NEWS - Arts Jacksole lead singer dies

Maybe 8 years back I had a chance encounter with him in NY, at a Yankees game. I somehow managed to luck into some great seats behind home plate and he was sitting next to me. I was not sure who he was and only found out because I sensed that everyone else around me was a season's ticket holder. So I asked him, " is this your regular seat ?" And he mentioned that he too lucked into his seats which lead to a very long ( 9 innings ), casual chat during the game. I found out what he did, who he was ( I had actually liked the band and it got a lot of play at that time ). Talked about many subjects. Very smart guy, very philosophical. He was in my brief chat a 'real' person. Can you ever want to be more than that. Best to his family.
