My grandfather Joseph Nathaniel Harding was born in 1925, in the small country of Guyana South America. His parents were from Barbados. They migrated there for better opportunity. My grandfather went to school until he was 9 and never went back. Even though he dropped out at an early age, his reading and writing did not diminish. He worked hard for the rest of those years to help his family. My grandfather transitioned from a single man to a family man when he met my grandmother Letitia Valette. Both of them came together to create my wonderful mother Volder Anetta Gittens. Grandad, we your grandchildren, Tumeka, Natosha, Paul, and your great grandchildren Lexus, Mark, and Kevin, and your son in law Paul Gittens love you with all our hearts!! You have been a pillar of strength, discipline, guidance and love. May the gates of heaven play their trumpets loud, to welcome you, and may you dance in the kingdom of heaven in peace for ever and ever, Amen. Love you grandad, forever in our hearts, your family.
