Hail Mi Irieites,
Ms. Alvera Coke, the mother of the late Peter Tosh has passed away. Here is the statement from the estate of Peter Tosh:
The Peter Tosh Estate with great sadness acknowledges the passing of Alvera Coke. Born in Belmont Jamaica May 25, 1917- she passed at the same home in which she grew up, in her bed today. As the matriarch of the Tosh family she leaves behind the great legacy as the mother of Peter Tosh and grandmother of ten. Her grand spirit and guidance will be missed.
Ms. Coke, we give thanks and praises for your love and inspiration. Your son got up, stood up for justice and was the voice for the voiceless. I and I are forever thankful for your grace.
