DLP members pay respects to late stalwart
A STEADY STREAM of Democratic Labour Party members filed past the casket of Sir Harcourt Lewis today as body of the late DLP stalwart reposed in the Auditorium of the party’s George Street headquarters.
Several party members also sat on the side-lines sharing recollections of the man who devoted much of his life to that political party, and serving as a Cabinet Minister in a DLP administration.
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Minister of Agriculture Dr David Estwick were among those offering condolences to Sir Harcourt’s widow Lady Lewis and other members of the family present in the auditorium.
An emotional Estwick said: “It is times like these when it is very difficult to really express your genuine feelings about someone that has been close to you for a very long time.” (GC)
