I remember my uncle Willie as a baker. When he was living in Barbados he use to bake a variety of bread and ride through the neighborhood selling the from a basket on his bicycle on Sunday . Sundays were my favorite day of the week because I could always count on a free sweet sweet bread from uncle Willie. I also remember him coming back to Barbados on holiday before his eyesight started to fail , and he would always stay by me. He always brought something to give to family and friends or even people he just meet. He was a kind loving and generous man . That was my uncle Willie , he will always be in my heart.
