Jamaica Union Mourns the Passing of a Dedicated Worker

The entire Jamaica Union Conference (JAMU) was plunged in mourning on Monday, November 11 when colleagues and friends of Aldane Codling learnt of his passing. He was 49.

“The Jamaica Union family, especially the workers at headquarters, have been traumatized by the passing of a coworker whom we have grown to love and respect for his dedication to service, and his warmth and friendly Christian disposition,” said Pastor Everett Brown, president of JAMU. “His passing has left a deep void in our hearts, but we are encouraged by the hope we embraced with him, and commend his wife, children, and family to God, who ultimately comforts all.”

Codling, who has spent the last 18 years of his work life, started denominational work in February 2001 as Hardware Technician at Northern Caribbean University (NCU). He then served as IT Training Coordinator at NCU from November 2010 until April 2011, when he was employed by the Jamaica Union Conference Headquarters, where he worked as the Data Processing Manager until his passing.

President of the Atlantic Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists, Pastor Peter Kerr, in expressing condolences said, “We are saddened to hear of the passing of this amazingly gifted and consecrated young worker. We are praying for the comfort of his precious family and the JAMU family”

Codling is survived by wife Annia, daughters Aldania, Aldanae and Aldanique, mother Peggy, brothers, sisters and other relatives and friends.

The Service of Thanksgiving for Aldane Codling will be held on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at the NCU Gymnatorium in Mandeville starting at 12 noon. His body will be interned at the Oaklawn Memorial Gardens, Manchester.

    Aldane was a quiet humble soul who was dedicated and kind. His willingness to assist everyone was his trademark. He last said to me that anywhere with Jesus he will safely go. He walked with the Lord, I believe when the trumpet of the Lord sounds he will rise with the dead in Christ. My condolences to his wife, children, family and friends.

    I am so saddened to learn of Aldane’s passing. I visited with him in the hospital earlier this year, but never thought that would be the last time – until the resurrection! He was one who sets goals for himself, and did whatever was right to attain them. Good family man, always willing to help, loved his church and his God! Will see you in the morning my friend!

I will treasure his memory and his teachings, he walked the path and shown the way, rest well my brother, rest well.

    Day by day, we all try to cope with the struggles of live. Death is a killer and one day soon it too will die. A friend of the family and to countless others. His passing has truly left a void in our hearts. Let us use the moments afforded us each day to call on the name of Jesus and tell others about him and finally, let others know we love them. Let us continue to lift up his family in prayer daily. He will sleep in peace.

    I’m deeply saddened with the passing of my dear friend, Aldane. I was in total denial when I first got the news of his demise and was hoping it not so. My sincere condolences to his family. Do take comfort in the Blessed Christian Hope and remember, Tears are a language, God understands.”

    Aldane would always greet me, “My friend and brother.” We shared a great friendship for years as students at WIC/NCU. He was a humble, God fearing and helping person. I am in shock. I heard of his illness recently, but did not know it would take him so soon. May God keep the family until the morning breaks eternal, bright and fair.
