Natasha and I grew up together in Lorraine Village in St. Croix; she was like a cousin to me. Although I moved to Connecticut in 1988, I have since revisited the island numerous times through the years. One of the things I always looked forward to doing during my visits was to visit all of my friends and the people I knew.
Now this coming August on my next visit, I will have to visit her resting place. As you news article stated Natasha was always "well liked by all." She will be greatly missed and my heart goes out to her entire Family.
Jacinth "Natasha" Stephen-Newson
