Vigil in memory of Rachel
One week after the accident along the Harbour Road, St Michael which claimed the life of Rachel Pilgrim and left another 19-year-old, Jalisa Clement, fighting for hers, relatives and friends gathered yesterday to pay tribute to Pilgrim.
About 100 people gathered near the back gate of the Nation Publishing Company, on the spot where Pilgrim died after being struck by a vehicle which had run off the road.
Sobs and wails could be heard, especially from the grief-stricken mother of the deceased, Jacqueline Pilgrim.
The group carried candles and balloons, softly sang hymns and offered the grieving support as they remembered a loving neighbour, friend, cousin, sister and daughter. (CA)
