Grenadian-Canadian Community is much the poorer for ....

the loss of Dudley Hood .
That was  in last week's  'Caribbean Camera'  a weekly  paper up north .

Lincoln DePradine  the writer.

Someone might know Hood eh ?
........  George Griffith a former Grenada High Commissioner to Canada, is one of the three former diplomats lauding Grenadian/Canadian Dudley Hood who died last weekend in Toronto .
.. " Dudley was well liked. He was welcomed in all circles . " Griffith told the Caribbean Camera.
"" He was a true Grenadian and community person  said former Consul general Derrick James.
Hood became a popular figure for his community and church engagement, as well as his passion for culture especially pan and carnival .
Parties  and ting at his lakeshore  home .
Jenny Gumbs who once served as Grenada's Consul General in To , said she held Hood in " High esteem'  ".

Times change, so do man. Depradine is or was very effective in Grenada.  There was once a poster on here with the handle Dcbaldie.  His last name is hood and also the son of who you mention.  As ah matter of fact, NH and I went to a Cricket game with him, on my last visit to the spice.  We spoke yesterday on his way to Brooklyn.
