"DANA, Always And Forever"
As a songwriter, singer, dancer, percussionist, and harmonica player for the Babylon Warriors, and as a leader of her own dance group (Garifuna dancers) prior to joining the Warriors in 1991. Dana excited audience wherever she entertained.
Dana's contributions, particularly to Belizean's in Southern California area, will always be remembered because as an advocate for the preservation of the culture, Dana promoted not only the Garifuna Culture, but that of Belizean musicians and dancers.
Dana had strong interest in developing the talents of young Belizean cultural entertainers. Her passing in Dangriga on March 23rd.1993 at edge 35, truly created a void as those who loved the style of entertainment she brought to the stage continue to speak of her loss.

The Children are still Dancing, Your Harmonica, plays on and on. The voice you gave, will last forever. Some day in heaven, we'll be together.
Dana, you left an indelible mark on Ponta Rock, by adding motion and color to the sound.
Many have been called, but a few have been chosen. Dana you'll shine forever.
To you D. my sister, yes it's from G. You're my loving motivator.
Dana, your contribution to the Garifuna cause, will live forever. We love you.
