Facebook photo contest winner


After spending 6 glorious months in Belize, it was a ‘no brainer’ to enter Grand Caribe Resort Facebook photo contest and be hopeful about winning. As I browsed my photos to decide which one to submit, the memories of my time on Ambergris Caye with my beloved JessieFaye flooded my soul! The contest came at a critical time for me, as I lost JessieFaye a week before Christmas. She was more than just a dog. She was my constant companion, who stayed by my side after 2 back surgeries … she was my best therapy for recovery. She was honestly my best friend, and everyone who met her loved her. Losing her was devastating! My plans are to return her ashes to the Caribbean, where she and I were happiest. My heart is still hurting from losing her, I know I will always miss her, but I truly believe traveling to Belize to ‘set her free’ will bring healing to my heart, soul, and mind. Thank you, Grand Caribe, for the opportunity and sincere thanks go to those who voted for my photo.

  1. I am so delighted that Paula, who happens to be a good friend I made during her brief time in San Pedro, won this contest! She is so incredibly deserving. I had the pleasure of meeting her wonderful JessieFaye as well and think that it is so fitting that her ashes be returned to the Caribbean Sea. I know even though it will be bittersweet, Paula will relish and fully appreciate being able to go back to the island where she spent so many special times with her best friend, JessieFaye.
