BU is saddened to learn of the passing of the late Prime Minister David Thompson MP QC,. He died about 2.10 AM (23 October 2010).
We join all Barbadians in extending sincere condolences to his family – wife Mara, mother Margaret Knight, children and close family members.
In this moment of sorrow the Lord I’d in our midst and consoles us with His word. Month eye has seen nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. Blessed are the sorrowful for they shall be comforted. Into your hands O Lord, we humbly entrust our brother. In this life you embraced him with your tender love and opened to him the gates of heaven. The old order has passed away and you welcome him into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, nor weeping nor pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever – Rev Guy Hewitt
