Once the store was established my Dad wanted to expand the store at its location next to the Methodist church & build a new family residence elsewhere and turn the entire location into a supermarket. Knowing my mother, he even took the initiative and purchased the lot as an inducement, but she adamantly refused to move & he later had to sell that lot but bought another where she cultivated her garden that she kept busy at long after the store closed. If it could be planted, my mother grew it. That decision by my Mother not to relocate probably set the course for my life’s decisions, because had he expanded as he wanted, I do not believe that I would have left later to pursue my educational advancement. I believe that I would have ended up operating it instead of closing it later due to disinterest by anyone as we were all working. Later, however, my brother would become a full-time student to pursue his undergraduate studies in the sciences at Cave Hill in Barbados & I would follow-suit years later (in the US).
