Eltha Hermina James
Tribute to the late Eltha Hermina James – a retired school principal, by Patmos Richards

Our dear Eltha

Your soul has taken flight
It has gone to eternal height
Awaiting you are a host of angels
Ready to bring you eternal joy

In your new abode
There will be no heavy load
A weight will be eased from your shoulder
No more physical malady about which to bother

Our dear Eltha, your rich legacies
As educator, community matriarch, mentor, moral counsellor
And a soulful Christian warrior
Have qualified you for Christ’s domain

Where you will always remain.
Keep wearing that happy smile
Show that pleasant countenance, and wait a while
To hear Jesus’ words

“Well done, my beloved and faithful servant.”
