Vigil in memory of burnt victim
MICHAEL?JEFFERSON?ALBERT is gone, but last week’s fire victim will never be forgotten by his family and friends.
His girlfriend Sherry-Ann Virginie could not fight back the tears, sisters Cecilia, Margaret and Veronica were still in shock, while brothers Antonio and John were glum during a candlelight vigil attended by close to 100 residents of Dash Valley, St George, last night.
A monument adorned with flowers and a picture of Jefferson was put up at the spot the Albert family once called home.
Sherry-Ann had to be consoled during the ceremony that was marked by prayers, songs, tributes and a minute’s silence for the 38-year-old carpenter, a product of South District Primary and St George Secondary School.
Albert was fatally burnt last week in a family dispute at Country Park Towers, St Michael. His brother Greville Headley has been charged with serious bodily harm and arson. (MK)
