Re: Remembering Mr. Horace Williams.

Hey Wendell, I know that you are an adopted Gouyaveman. You mentioned about shoemakers by trade. Did you know that the two main shoemakers in gouyave was my uncle Crespo Millette and John (pipey) Decoteau,my godfather and father of Tony Decoteau. I believe Alfred (forty) used to do part time. My father was a professional shoemaker in New York. He started in gouyave, then went to Trinidad. Shoemaking was a big deal in Trinidad. He came back to grenada for a short time making shoes. He made all the shoes for the bridesmaids in his wedding (1954) in New York which he was very proud to boast about.. I have those pictures. He gave up his trade to work building repairs which he said made more money.

Re: Remembering Mr. Horace Williams.

Thank you for telling me this.Yes, Gouyaveman made me a Gouyaveman a long time ago. But before that, teacher Critchlow took me to the L'Anse while we taught at Schaper School and baptized me in fish. LOL.
