LITTLE DELLON RIVALDO MARIUS was bade farewell yesterday in a quiet service at the Gittens Gap Fellowship Church, Gittens Gap, Government Hill, St Michael. The three-month-old boy died on April 3.

There was no eulogy, but Pastor Winfield Forde in delivering a brief address told those gathered that “God can heal the hurt”.

“I know that many of you are hurting this morning but God can heal the hurt. God can give you help. He has helped those in the past and certainly He can help you move on,” Forde told the congregation.

He said also that God can give them hope as stated in Isaiah, “Seek ye the lord while he may be found call ye upon him while he is near”.

After the 30-minute service at the small wooden church, the small white casket trimmed in blue left for the interment at Westbury Cemetery, St Michael.

Blue was the colour of choice for the mourners who joined in singing the songs which included There’s a Friend for Little Children and Jesus Wants Me for A Sunbeam.

At the graveside, the songs included Tell Me the Stories of Jesus, Jesus Loves This I Know and When He Cometh. It was then that tears flowed for little Dellon.

According to police reports Dellon was mistakenly left at home by the parents during the morning period, and was later discovered unresponsive.

The death happened sometime between 7 a.m. and 5:40 p.m. at the family’s Webster’s Gap Back Ivy, St Michael home.

Following the discovery of the body, both parents were interviewed by police. (LK)
