A Heartfelt Tribute by Maxi Priest


Today is a very sad day for me and my family. Our sister, Belsie Elaine Elliott, has transitioned. Feeling very strange, sad, and confused, as tears roll down my cheeks.

I find it difficult to comprehend the fact that my sister has passed away. I don’t know whether to go left or right, stand or sit, shout, scream, or let out my cry. Every day is like a test, or at least, that’s how I feel.

I remember what my mom would say, “God knows best.” My memory list is long. I recall hearing my mother’s voice singing church songs. I see my sister and her clear dark brown eyes looking at our mom singing and playing away.

My beautiful sister Belsie is spiritual, kind, gentle, intelligent, Stern, and at times, misunderstood. I honestly think that’s all of us at times. Sometimes, we hold onto things that we need to let out, and sometimes, we let out things that we need to hold. Life is full of choices. We just have to pray that we make the right decisions each day.

I say this because there are so many things left unsaid. My big sister Belsie, at least you know I love you! I can’t stop thinking about my childhood experiences with you, Mom, Osborne, and the family.

Please say hi to everyone when you see them in Zion. Travel peacefully. Your loving brother Max. Sending prayers of love and strength to my niece and nephews Howard, Vinney, Yvonne, and Mark.
