Dems still giving to Barbados
WITH THE MEMORY of late Prime Minister David Thompson still fresh in their minds, his family, friends and Barbadians in general gathered yesterday to celebrate his life.
At St John’s Parish Church yesterday during the memorial service, Acting Prime Minister Ronald Jones spoke of the legacy Thompson had left behind.
“Barbados is more than an economy, it is a society.”
According to Jones, these words were part of Thompson’s legacy and outlined the vision which Barbadians must uphold.
Jones said Thompson had shown his colleagues in the Democratic Labour Party how to act and how to treat people and this was something which would remain long after his death.
“David taught us not to be selfish and we have not forgotten that. We continue to give service to the people of Barbados and we are continuing on the journey to ensure the lives of the people of Barbados be made better,” he said.
