Joey was a sophisticated gentleman from the top bracket of Barbadian decency. Limited edition.
R.I.P and rise glory
A good friend and mentor to me. He fought his health challenges with dignity for decades while serving the people of Barbados. He would be there to assist any citizen at any given hour. May he rest in peace.
Allison Archer … smh
I have lost a true friend of many years–too many to count. Joey was always there to support me in all my endeavours . I will miss him greatly. It was his job to do my eulogy , not this way around!! Earl Maynard
May you rest in peace Mr Harper. A gentleman you were. Condolences to the Harper family.
Rest In Peace, Joey.
As Chairman of the Child Care Board, Joey would not let the Director nor her staff speak, he did all the talking, as if he was the Executive Chairman. A mic or a TV camera were his best friends.
The same is today. All these new Chairpersons the new BLP regime have appointed, are hogging the show, as if they are in Executive roles.
CEOs or General Managers of these statutory boards/corporations, are rarely able to speak. Big egos on the turntables.
The Evy I love yah tape has run its course.
RIP Joey Harper.
Brother Joey, it will be strange to know that you will never sit in your seat in church again, but every time the doors are open we will look across the pews and remember you.
Sis. Evy, may God strengthen and comfort you in your hour of sorrow. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. You will smile again as sure as the sun rises every day, even when it is hidden by a dark cloud, it is still there. You wil smile again.
Joey, may your soul rest in peace and rise in glory
