    Government, Ed, the well liked MP for Grandbay has been dead for more than six weeks and you only announce that now. We’re you not certain or hoping he would do a Lazarus or perhaps delay his funeral till the PM comes back from his cabinet in Dubai.That is bizarre man. It will be difficult to replace Ed and please don’t put a sycophant in his place and disturb Ed’s memory. Let him rest in peace please.

    Rest well Ed. You worked hard for your country and you served your constituents admirably. You were born and brought up in a family where the power of the Almighty Father was recognized with reverence. You spoke the word from an early age and you walked in that spirit of love and faith. Your smile radiated and we will remember you. Rest in Peace, my dearest little neighbour.

    Alah how sad. Another prominent real labor government minister died in office at a very young age and Roosevelt Skerrit and Charles Savarin will once again bury him as they did to Rosie and Piero. What is even more sad is, all three real labor ministers were died at a very young age. Rosie was only 58, Pierro 49 and Ed 50. And just remember I said Skerrit and Savarin buried them and I didn’t accuse them of doing anything else ok.

      We get the message, OK? Enough said. I saw the funeral service for pierce Charles decades later and some “body language” of some is very telling. I didn’t call names, OK?
