Mara grateful for prayers
The following is a statement from Mara Thompson, widow of Prime Minister David Thompson.
BARBADOS has lost its loyal son and faithful servant before he had the time to realise his lifetime dreams.
“Our family has lost the person who was central to all we did. We enjoyed and endured his public service experiences. He was always indebted to the people and the party for affording him the opportunity to see the mountain top.
“Our long vigil this year was lightened by the prayers and support of Barbadians. We are deeply grateful for all your considerations as we seek to reflect as a family in mourning but we invite your continued prayers.
