United in grief
THE MOOD WAS SOMBRE at Long Bay, St Philip, late yesterday evening.
At 6 p.m. relatives, friends and supporters gathered for a vigil to remember the four young women who lost their lives in a vehicular accident early last Sunday morning.
Just before the vigil started at 6:43 p.m. lightning struck, brightening the dark skies. Then came the heavy rains.
The crowd had swelled to an estimated 500, walking from Long Bay Corner to Long Bay Road to a gap opposite the Salvation Army church.
It was the district where Shameka Shepherd, 23, lived.
Shameka, her cousin Shakira Shepherd, 22, Carey Brathwaite, 18, and Wavney Johnson, 25, died tragically on their way home from celebrating Shameka’s birthday.
