Everyone should have an anchor during trying times says Senator, The Reverend John Rogers as he delivered the sermon at the funeral of policeman Ryan Delano Spencer Coppin (below) yesterday.
The 37-year-old Constable was buried under full military honours at the St George Parish Church. Coppin was found hanging near his Gooseberry Drive, Ruby Park, St Philip home on the morning of January 6, 2020, after his girlfriend reported him missing.
“We all have to do some serious introspection on what would have taken place. We’re all called to remember that we’re traversing an ocean in this world, and some persons have many better days than others.
“It is times like these that everyone needs an anchor. There are some of us . . . that as soon as we make progress and felt we’ve overcome one thing, another thing emerges. . . . Ryan was battling much more than the average human being,” he said. (RA)
