Today 27 November 2022 as I write another Tribute to my Auntie Marty Nembhard aka Evelyn Bailey, I have no alternative but to consider why God has decided to make me suffer after the death of my brother and again after mum died with dementia. However, instead of feeling sorry for myself and the fact that I experienced the systematic discrimination after bereavement and losses. I must use this opportunity to share the role of Auntie Marty in telling me about my Mills-Nembhard HISTORY.
I would like to continue creating the legacies for future generations of my FAMILY and must acknowledge the contributions of Aunt Evelyn Bailey aka Marty Nembhard who was born to Charles and Irene Mills-Nembhard in St Elizabeth, Jamaica. Auntie Marty was one of sixteen (16) children for her parents and was blessed with five (5) half-siblings from her father. So as not to limit the power of how important it is to know our history, I will list my grandparent’s children.

I just want to take this opportunity to share with my FAMILY the power of Social Media, but also to be aware that Social Media can enslave us. Word Press Mervelee Advocacy https://home/merveleeadvocacy.com and Fight4justice https://wordpress.com/home/mervelee.com…
I have written my stories online and this is available for my FAMILY to know their HISTORY in honour of my FATHER Ivan Sandyman and my Auntie Marty. I must mention my brother ASHTER SERENER URELLA NEMBHARD who carried on the TRADITIONS of my father and Auntie Marty. I was privileged to have my COUSIN Balvin Bailey growing up with us in Westmoreland. He was a frequent visitor to our home in Westmoreland from his home in St Dacre St Ann.
Dad used to take us on Annual Pilgrimage to his birthplace in Aberdeen St Elizabeth when I was a child laying the foundation for me developing my PASSION in documenting my HISTORY. I was privileged to arrange a FAMILY REUNION in 2009 during one of the most devastating times after I lost my brother WALFORD BYRON ALBURNEY NEMBHARD with colon cancer. My stories are documented and if anyone wants to know the information it can be found online. YouTube http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8CrRSjbtvdSw2EIMMaSB1g and http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCafNXIstv9upeEM0e17jg…
I arranged a PILGRIMAGE to meet my Auntie Marty in 2011 whilst on holiday. I have my Journal about the information she shared with me.
Last Family Alive
Auntie Telyn is the last sibling of my Father’s I know who is alive. But how many of the younger generation even know of her existence. I finance another FAMILY REUNION in 2019 and since then I have been OSTRACISED and be made into the BLACK SHEEP of the NEMBHARD FAMILY. I will continue this story in my next BOOK “A MOTHER’S LOVE.
I can be found online for those of us who are open to be DECOLONIZE and DEBRAINWASHED.
