Angela was a personal friend and colleague of twenty-five years standing. From her position in the Caricom Secretariat she mobilised continuous support for the Consortium Graduate School of Social Sciences; I in turn admired her sterling work in the environment, governance, and equitable development. I have been honoured to serve on the Board of the Foundation that she founded along with her late husband, John. She confronted the final challenge of her life with grace and courage. “Tell my friends I went down fighting”, were among her last words to me as I visited with her for the last time two months ago. A finer exemplar of the best that the Caribbean has to offer the world, one could hardly find.
