Eight years ago a close-knit family from rural Barbados was plunged into mourning after losing four loved ones to a vehicular accident – an experience some of them said they would never get over. But time has proven to be the ultimate therapy.

On a bleak, rainy Wednesday morning in 2007 along Highway 1 at Mullins, St Peter, four members of the Depeiza family died tragically after the van in which they were travelling collided with a minibus.

Thirty-nine-year-old Gail, her son Shadane, five, daughter Shaquana, eight, and 15-year-old niece Claire Depeiza of Cole’s Cave, St Lucy, all died on the spot.
