Jacquie Devine, who worked most recently at Banana Beach, passed away recently in San Pedro. There is a memorial service for her today at 4pm.

She was a wonderful lady, who impacted the lives of many on the island.... we will miss her greatly...

Here is a poem that the staff of Banana
Beach Resort dedicated to their beloved Jacquie...

I am gone,
But I leave with you so much of me
I leave behind a smile, joy and love
I leave you things to give away
Give smile to someone who is sad
or to children

Or to those who donít expect one
Joy for any occasion
Especially when you feel my presence
Give love, if you need to cry
Cry for those I leave behind

When you need me,
Put your arms around someone
Give to them what you want to give to me
Receive what you need to receive
Let me live in your smile, your joy
and your love,

Love doesnít die, people do
So, at every opportunity, share me
Iíll see you again
And my love will always be with you.

I have known Jacquie for many years. I used to work with her in the U.S. She was a wonderful, gracious lady that will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. We were fortunate to visit her in San Pedro a year ago. She was great with helping us with accomodations, island facts and so on. Before she retired from her job in the states, she had visited Belize and truly fell in love with it. She loved the people, the culture, the scenery etc. I was so sad when I saw her obituary in the local paper this morning. I couldn't believe it as she was so young inside. I guess the one thing I was able to smile about was the fact that Jacquie was able to realize her dream of moving to San Pedro and living the life she wanted with the people she loved. How many can say they have realized their dreams? I can't (yet). Godspeed Jacquie. I was your friend.
