Abijah laid to rest
THE ELEVEN YEAR OLD BOY who lost his life in car accident last month has been laid to rest.
A large number of mourners, including members of the Rastafarian community, turned out at Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens to pay their last respects Abijah Holder-Phillips, who had been due to enter Queen’s College in September.
His mother Felicia Holder said Abijah loved plants and animals and brought joy to the lives of many.
Police were called to the gravesite after the boy’s father, Junior Phillips, objected loudly to not being allowed to say something at the funeral ceremony.
The microphone was cut as he was about to speak, but the service and interment continued as scheduled. (Barbados Nation)
