Wave of grief

Wave of grief

Social Share

TEARS FLOWED, wails were heard, colleagues collapsed and fond memories of Caroline Forde were shared last night at a candlelight vigil held in her memory.
The atmosphere at the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex was emotionally charged as tributes flowed in word and  song for Forde, who met  her death at the complex  last week Monday.
Forde’s grown sons Kismar and Andre were reduced  to tears, Kismar standing for long periods with head bowed. Daughters Karen, Cherriann, Nikita and Shellyann had to be comforted as they wept openly,  at times leaning on family  and friends for support.
Long-time friend and employer Pamela Beckles collapsed when Michael Jackson’s Gone Too Soon  was played. That set off a wave of wailing as Forde’s friend Suminta Mason also had to be assisted after she too could  no longer keep her composure.
