Mama’s Last Moments! 3.6.14
The events leading up to Mama’s death are very uncanny and transported me back to my Papa’s death in 1980. I was the last to see my Papa alive when I went into the room to greet him before taking my baby for a walk to get fresh air. Strangely enough when I got back from the walk and went in to find Papa dead and called Mama. She did not believe he was dead and when she came to the first thing she said “he never got any WATER…”
After my Race for Life walk for Cancer Research, I was fooling around on SM when I was overwhelmed by this strange feeling that caused the Tears to start and wouldn’t stop. So I went to bed, got up next morning and was working with Tom in the back garden. Balis called and updated me about Mama and I was not bothered like was usual. The blessed thing about that call from Balis is the fact that I heard Mama’s voice for the very last time. Balis said “Mama talk to your daughter nuh…”
I could hear her in the background saying “ehn-hn…” over and over again! Then Andrea called and we chatted about everything including Mama, Ms Deans and Ms Lou… Nathan passed and Andrea asked if he wanted to speak to her auntie and Mass Papa Son said “not now”! I jokingly said to Andrea that he did not want to speak to me because I might ask him when they are getting married!
Throughout the day I was just tired, but I kept going until I retired to bed from sheer exhaustion. I already told my family I don’t answer phone after certain hours because it upsets my rest, so they can always leave a message if there is an emergency. The ringing of the phone got me out of my deep sleep and I automatically looked across at the clock. It was 12.20 and Dostan told me what was happening with Mama. I told him to keep me informed and went back to sleep.
The phone rang again and Dostan said Mama was put in the vehicle, but it don’t make any sense so she was taken back out again. I knew this was the end of the road for Mama as she had decided to retire from all her life’s journeys. I got out of bed, called my Little Breda’s home and told them Mama was on her way home. When I spoke to Andrea last night she told me about the poignant last moments that Mama had surrounded by her family as she entered the Promise Land relived of sufferings.
Balis gave her 4 spoons of water and told her now you can’t say you did not get any water? Kadene prayed for Mama and she said “Amen”, so that means she was alert until the very last. Then she went off peacefully to sleep and be with her Maker. It really touched my heart and soul to know that Mama stuck to Christian faith until she drew her last breathe.
Mama was born into a Family who upheld Christian principles and values in 1924. She was christened, married and baptised at the Townhead Baptist Church and her children after her were also christened there. Mama will be having her final leg of her Home Coming Service at the Townhead Baptist Church where she fellowshipped with many from the communities. One of Mama’s favourite song was – “When Once I Found a Mothers’ Church…”
Mama was born a Baptist, lived her life as a Baptist and died a Baptist and will be buried a Baptist! RIP Pearline Louise Chambers-Nembhard as we will soon come together to celebrate the life of one remarkable Woman who was Our Mother, Grand Mother, Great Grand, Auntie, Cousin, Friend, God Mother and all round Unique Individual who was put on this earth for a special purpose. You have fulfilled your roles and responsibilities and now gone on before Us to take your Rest!
From ALL the Persons whose lives you touched in any way! MAMA LOU DIED AT HOME IN HER BED SURROUNDED BY FAMILY! SHE WAS A BAPTIST TO THE END!
