RichardWhat a fine man Baretta was, and such a good and true friend to me the whole of my Harbour Island time. My deepest sympathy to his family and the whole community for your huge loss--a passage way, way too soon. Richard Haskell

KifDeepest sympathy to Lona, Caleb and Sherwin.

My last memory of Baretta is at the terrific 'island' celebration at Seashell to celebrate the recovery of Frank Hamilton this past winter.

May we honor him by coming together again in thoughts and prayers for friends and family and celebrate his life.

MaddieHe was such a special man, always waving and hailing us as we went by!
He loaned us all his tables and chairs for my son's wedding reception.
He will be greatly missed!

chapelOur hearts go out to the family and friends of Neville "Baretta" Major of Seashells Inn, who passed away on Thursday 25 June 2009. A greater man more committed to the local business development of Harbour Island, we will not see again soon anytime soon ... our condolences go out to his family and friends.
