Nakino Charles Hall

On January 18th, 1988, a new babe was ushered into this world. He was given the name Nakino Charles. He was the second of four siblings, and the eldest boy.

As is the case with many children, he was very inquisitive and had a keen sense of curiosity. This was displayed in his later years when he would sit in the home of his grandparents to watch television. He would sit glued to the television, and one had to call his name more than once to get his attention. When asked what the movie was about, he could tell you what would happen in the end before the movie was over.

He began his education at the Sandilands Primary School and was one of the top students in his class at the time. After completing primary school, he went on to L.W. Young and Doris Johnson schools.
Nakino was raised between the homes of his maternal grandparents, his mother and grandaunt. His mother, though faced with struggles and challenges of her own, tried to raise him and his siblings as best as she could. He would often sit with his grandfather and other cousins, and they would watch television and basketball games together. He loved his mother, siblings, nieces and nephews, and when asked to baby sit, he would take pleasure in doing so. He would often be seen taking food to his granduncle Alfred for his grandmother or going to the store for his grandparents. Since his grandaunt Petrole was faced with some disabilities, he was very committed in tending to her needs and was just like her right hand. He had a special bond with his aunts and cousins and you would often hear them calling out his name whenever he entered the homes or was hereby. Whenever he was corrected he never answered and remained mannerly, even to his uncles. Since he was the eldest grandson, he took advantage of certain privileges and being a young man, he would eat you out of house and a home.

Being from a solid Catholic family and a family of faith, it was made known to him that you have to watch the company you keep as they would lead you astray and “leave you out to dry”, and if you go contrary, you will pay the price. That he did experience and it proved to be a painful one for him. Like all of us, Makino was not perfect and had his share of challenges in his life. But through it all, he always had a good word for those with whom he would come into contact and always helpful and gave of himself.

His sudden and unexpected death has left a huge void in his family. It has caused us to reflect on our own busy lives and the need to stop, talk and listen as one can never imagine the pain he was carrying on the inside. We also know that God knows all things and that he will never put more on you that you can bear despite how hard it seems.
