A wake (nine night) was held for Gregory Isaacs in London on Tuesday night. There were no indication of any of his wives were present, but chances are at least one them would be. It has been more or less confirmed that Gregory Isaacs apparently had two wives with one being Jamaican, "the original wife" since the early 1980's and the other wife is his recent spouse who is of British origin. His first wive lives in Jamaica did not have any children for him but took care of ten out of twelve children that Gregory had with various women. Even though the marriage frizzled it appeared that no official divorce came through. There appear to be no serious talk of claims to estate as yet however it is matter time before the wives would have to "face the music".
Present at the wake were the likes of Dennis Alcapone and Singer A.J. Franklyn who had great praises for the late great singer.
There will be a memorial service in London next week after which the body will be flown to Jamaica on Thursday the 11th for a state funeral and burial according to reports.
