It is with great sadness that I extend my sincere condolences to the Hopson and de Coteau families, especially to Raphael and Christine, on the passing of Gora. May she rest in peace.


My deepest sympathy goes out to Richard, Rachael & Loraine on the passing of your Mom. The Cuffie Family in Canada also send their condolences. may she rest in peace.


My deepest sympathy to the family of Gora. Gora was a great friend and co worker. R.I.P Gora. (PJ USA)


We have known Gora for such a long while beginning with the brotherly relationship which our deceased brother Carlie enjoyed with Raffie (Raphael) for YEARS. I also had the privilege of working with her at the Ministry of Communication and Works when I just left form six. Grief and Pain are difficult to manage without Faith. I ask her immediate family including Hazel, Christine, Raffie and Bumpy, relatives and friends to find solace in The GREAT I AM who provides us with all our needs.
