Arise Sir Branford
Sir Branford Taitt was emotional today for the presentation of the Independence Honours at the tranquil surroundings of Government House.
Sir Branford received his citation before an audience that included Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, acting Chief Justice Sherman Moore and members of the Cabinet.
Sir Branford said it meant everything to have his wife, Lady Colleen, daughters Monique and Sharon and son Branford Jr there at the ceremony.
This country’s newest knight, a former Cabinet Minister, Member of Parliament, and scholar, was especially delighted that his nine-year-old grandson, Marley, who was born in the United Sattes, was in the front row.
“It means so much to me to have family here, especially little Marley. He is now fully Barbadianised after an occasion like this. I am also very thankful to my wife, for her support. In almost everything I have done, she has been there for me,” he said.
