Too shaken to talk, says Dario
THE LATE Prime Minister David Thompson had three daughters but also raised his nephew, Dario, from the age of four.
Yesterday, Dario, 22, who now resides in Canada, said he was shaken by the death of Thompson, who often referred to him as his “adopted son”.
“I am so shaken that I do not know what to say,” he texted to thE NATION.
“I am his nephew by blood but son by way of life. He took me under his wing from the age of four,” said Dario, whose biological father is Thompson’s brother, Charles.
Dario said he lived with Thompson and his wife, Mara, until he migrated to Canada at age 17. (MB)
