  42. I met the Dan & Yvette in 1992. I was new to the area and was looking for a church home. Not sure who I met first, however, they were so welcoming and made me feel at home – I found a new family. Through conversation, I realised we shared a mutual friend. I remember his big smile, encouraging words when I was leaving to return home and was so honoured when they accepted our invitation to our wedding. We would see Dan and Yvette over years at camp meetings and it always a joyful time. We will miss our brother, but, to Yvette and the ladies, stay faithful, death is but a sleep and when the trumpet sounds you will meet again.
    Our condolences to you and family.

  44. The Monday after Daniel (Belt, so I used to call him) went in the hospital he returned my call of the previous week and told me he was there. He told me what happened and what he was going through. We talked about a number of things , and about the family, I had prayer with him. I checked on him during the week. The next Monday I called and the doctor just left the room, he told me what they were going to do to follow up on his treatment. He told me that he didn’t sleep well the night and felt very sick. With that I told him to take some rest and I would call him later. I didn’t know that was going to be the last time we would talk, because I decided to call in the morning instead of the night. It still has not yet registered that he is gone. We share the same birth year, we grew up in Spanish Town together, and we have always been in contact with him and the family who are dear to Merlene and myself, we shared many memories. We surely are going to miss Belt and will always keep Yvette and the children in our prayers.

  45. candleOur deepest sympathy and prayers to your family, Br. Broadbelt will be deeply missed. He was a kind man and a true gentleman, he always had a warm smile and encouraging words to share. He will undoubtedly be missed.

  46. With one of the best smiles, I will always cherish the life & times of great man of God.
    A gift from the Lord through the Broadbelt family that made the world and Hutchinson family better.
    In celebration his life, we are praying that God will send Angelic support with gifts of healing love to Yvonne and all families, including those connected socially and spiritually.
    1 Corinthians 15:52-54 assures that a glorious immortal life awaits Daniel , when Christ Jesus calls him.
    I always will cherish his loving memories.

  48. To the Broadbelt Family, my deepest condolences. May Mr. Broadbelt Soul Rest In Peace. With Love until we meet cuz on the other side 🙏🏿🥰

  49. I can remember the first day I met my big cousin Dan, on that day my name changed from Dalton and I became RamJam, and from that day on I was always happy to be around him. It was always great to see him, when we had been apart for a long time.
    We clicked he was always comfortable to be around. Dan was someone who never complained or had a negative word to say about anyone. He cannot be replaced and will be impossible to forget because his love and memories are embedded in my heart.
    When we were together I never realized we were making memories since we were so happy around each other and having fun. I never foresaw this day without you. Dan, the bond in our family flows strong and deep because of you. You have left us memories to treasure and keep forever. A thousand words can’t bring you back, I know because I have said them, and neither will a million tears I know because I have cried them. Whenever I count my blessings I’ll count you twice. This is not our happily ever after Cuz, but walk good.

  50. I can remember Broadie and I playing cricket together .RIP my friend and I look forward to that great reunion in heaven.

  66. Our brother/friend Daniel,
    We met at Spanish Town Church in 1972. You belonged to that group of “older youth” who guided and protected the younger ones. I remember your bright engaging, ever welcoming smile that transferred to voice and eyes. We the girls heading to 24 Willowdale Drive were assured of safety because you walked with us. When we reconnected in New York, it was as if time had not moved for us. You were still amazingly wonderful with light and laughter. You always made us feel special and stated how proud you were of our achievements. Your greatest pride however was of your family and Yvette was your iris from youth. You spoke often about the gift that God gave you in such a wife and how God secured your relationship. You always wanted her to be happy and comfortable.
    God puts angels on this earth and sometimes we recognize them. You were one of His angels. Sleep in peace Danny. Joy comes in in the morning and dawn is not far off. Condolences to Yvette, Sharifa, NGala and the rest of the family from Marcelyn McCalla, Jean “Dolly” Lewis, Karlene McCalla, Steve Weir.
