Mara still misses David
St John MP Mara Thompson was married to Barbados’ late Prime Minister David Thompson for 29 years.
A year ago, Mara found herself widowed, her husband succumbing to the pancreatic cancer which he had bravely battled with her constantly at his side.
Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of Thompson’s passing, an event that devastated the nation, and which has left a deep void in the Mapps, St Philip household which the former charismatic leader once headed.
In the Big Interview in tomorrow’s SUNDAY SUN, Mara reflects on her life with David Thompson and discusses her personal and public life without him, with NATION Senior Reporter Gercine Carter.
