A Small Tribute for Dr. Frank Williams – By Eusi Kwayana

A Small Tribute for Dr. Frank Williams

By Eusi Kwayana   (read on Thursday 10 September 2015)

Dr Frank Middleton Warner Williams, who was 98 at the time of his passing, was celebrated in ‘Music & Words’ at the Promenade Gardens on September 10, prior to his remains being interred.

In what beat, what rhythm shall we celebrate the life of this music-loving physician?

In  his early years he  played  the organ at St Sidwell’ Church for the funeral of  Lawyer  AB Brown, the first African Guyanese  to be elected  as  Financial  representatives (an MP of those times) in colonial  Guyana. And the Honourable AB Brown was, like today’s Guest of Honour,  Dr. Frank Williams, (98)  a Den Amstel villager.

Now at this Celebration that is for his life, there is no Church.    Continue reading

Dealing with them is never easy, but it’s such a difficult problem that it’s worth looking at some strategies you might consider. I was reminded of this problem by a reader recently, who asked, “What if toxic people are my family? How do I shut them out? What if I can’t find the courage to rise above them?”   Continue reading
