St John pays tribute at service
Today, just over 24 hours after Prime Minister David Thompson died; there was a “high energy” thanksgiving service in memory of him and his legacy, in the parish of St John, on Gall Hill hard-court.
The event which was organised by the church community of the parish, of which the late prime minister was parliamentary representative up until he died, was one of reverence, as local gospel artistes sang songs of praise and pastors ministered words of wisdom and inspiration.
Among the scores of Barbadians, was the family of the late Thompson, including his wife Mara and his three daughters, his friends and parliamentarians, who were all, touched by the gospel and sympathy they received from the numerous performers. (AH)
