Rest in peace, Dr Heather Little-White

January 23rd, 2013

Nutritionist, Dr Heather Little-White has died. I don’t know about you, but this was someone that I greatly admired. She was a well-known and well-loved household name, who constantly tried to better the lives of others, by teaching them about making healthy food choices and positive lifestyle changes.

She was a very thoughtful person who remained optimistic even after being shot and wounded approximately 14 years ago. Dr Little-White will surely be missed.

According to reports, Little-White, 60, was under medical care for four months, going in and out of the hospital, but later succumbed to her illness and died at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) in intensive care.

My condolence goes out to the family and friends of this exceptional woman who taught and helped so many Jamaicans. Make your comments about Dr Heather Little-White. Go ahead and have your say…

    I have never met this wonderful woman but somehow, feel like we’ve known each other before. I admire her strength, determination and above all the love of her people by teaching them about food choice for healthy living.

    I stared at her photograph for some time and in that face, you can see unselfishness, a beacon of light and authenticity at core.

    May her beautiful soul rest in peace.

    I have not seen Dr. Little-White except on local Television during short visits home as I took up residence in other parts of the Caribbean some sixteen years ago. I remember her as a solid professional who at all times could be descibed as excellent in her whatever she delivered in the field of Nutirtion. However it is for her strength and commimtment to service in the face of personal tragedy that I will always remember her. Her legacy is the path she has left for all Jamaicans who desire to serve their country to follow, no matter what their circumstances. I believe that her soul is resting in peace.

  5. Thanking Heather and her family for the service to the country she share so selflessly for all thee years. Wife, DrRosie & I trust that many more will begin to follow her sterling example of dedication to service and gain from it the many blessings we know have been bestowed unto her and her kin.

    We wish husband, Peter, the children and the rest of the family peace and good cheer at this time. We remind them to not only hold her memory sacred but to uphold and herald her name and legacy near, far and wide – it’s what she’s deserving of. Wait on no one to get these plans in place and erect a memorial for her too. The good and great people among us ought to be remembered as such in all ways.

    With all our love and best energies
    CCC & DrRosie

    I am extremely saddened by the death of Dr. Little-White. I can only say that I was so angry about the shooting and subsequently a few years ago, she was robbed at a money machine.
    My condolences to her family. I know she is okay with the Almighty.
    Those of us who are here and share this love and admiration for her should organize ourselves to keep her memory alive by working on some of the projects she started and on starting a lobbying group to force our country to deal with crime and violence, and the by products thereof…finally. I am so moved to do something in memory of her.
    May her remarkable soul rest in peace. May we act.
