TOO OFTEN, PEOPLE wait until a person passes before giving them their due accolades.It was with this in mind that Ernetha Gaskin, Veronica Francis-Edwards and Velda Trotman decided to hold a special ceremony in honour of postal worker Ernest Boyce for his exemplary service to the Cave Hill, St Michael, community.The ceremony took the form of a special church service at the Mount Hermon church in Grenville Way, Cave Hill last Sunday and included songs, dances and an acrostic, as well as a sermon performed by acting assistant postmaster general Bernard Young.Other members of the Cave Hill community also pitched in and provided food and drinks.“He is a very nice man and goes beyond the call of duty by collecting medication and cashing pension cheques for the elderly. For more than 18 years he has been working here and he has never had anything bad said about him.“We hope other communities can take our example and show the important people in their communities the appreciation they deserve before they die,” said Francis-Edwards.Boyce, who works at the Eagle Hall post office, expressed his gratitude for the thoughtful gesture and admitted it was all mostly a surprise to him.
