DYEO expresses condolences for member and Dominican student in Venezuela Kedron Popo

Kedron Popo

The executive committee and general membership of the Dominica Youth Environment Organisation (DYEO) Inc. would like to offer its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of DYEO member Mr. Kedron Popo, who passed suddenly in December 2010 while pursuing studies in Venezuela.

Mr. Popo was a dedicated member and will forever be missed for his adventurous and enthusiastic nature and various environmental exploits, including mentorship of the Dominica State College Environmental Club and Grandmasters Entertainment.


The organisation is deeply surprised and saddened by this sudden news and has lost a very promising member and Dominican citizen.

Rest in peace Kedron and do enjoy the comforts and company of the Heavenly Father.

    Dear Family of Mr. Kedron Popo, I am saddened to learn of the death of this promising young man whilst in the prime of his development. As I reflect on his passing I think of the words mentioned at Job 14:14 where the patriach asked the question, ” If an able bodied man dies can he live again?”. The answer is a resounding Yes!! The proof is in the Bible: Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29; tell of the resurrection to life on an earth transformed into a paradise. Revelation 21:4 shows that death and sickness will be no more. So no more bad news about the passing of a loved one. Instead we will welcome the ones we have lost unexpectedly back to this earth under the rulership of our Ransomer Jesus Christ as King of God’s righteous Kingdom. That indeed is a wonderful prospect. The scene of the world is changing and very soon sin and all its effects will pass away. So while we await this wonderful new world free from sickness and death remember the words of Psalms 55:22 ” Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, And he himself will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to totter. So rest Mr. Popo until Jesus utters the words he did to Lazarus at John 11:43, ” .. Come on out!”. To your family and friends I say finally, have faith in these words, ” For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus out Lord.”

    With Love and heartfelt sympathies,

    I keep returning to this page still in disbelief. Attended the funeral but somehow i still believe that its all a dream and i will get up and hear your voice over the phone enthusiastically asking advice about an environmental project, some swimming or music venture.

    so full of bright ideas, so full of zeal, gone to soon my friend

    gone so soon.

      I am sorry for your loss..

      But please don’t say gone too soon, for no one knows his appointed time. Our lives are not ours as its only loaned unto us. Do you know if you are going to die tonight? Or tomorrow? Or next week? If you knew, what would you do differently today? God’s waiting.

      Love and Blessings my friend.

      ps.. Before you condemn me, think of what you are going to say for if you do believe there is a God, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that’s in whose name I bring you these words…

I knew him a while back but when I went to college got involved with Environmental Club and Kedron was at the helm. We learnt a lot from you.You will be missed my friend.

    Dear Paris & Family,……….. Only getting to know of your son’s sudden death here on DNO. Accept my sincere apologies. Another cousin in the U.S. also lost a family member suddenly two weeks before your son’s death. Your son’s work will always be remembered and cherished. He has left a legacy to be imitated. May his soul rest in peace.

    I am deeply saddened by the death of Kedron whom I met for the first time in September when he was preparing to leave for Venezuela. I was very impressed by his mannerisms , charm, honesty, and reliability. Please accept my condolences on behalf of Nilda and Sharilyn in Venezuela. You will be missed but never forgotten. To the family may God bless you abundantly and may you receive strength from on high to endure your pain. God bless you all. Mrs. Popo you are a strong woman. Keep trusting the Lord.

    May his soul rest in peace …I pray that God will comfort the families and friends…Young people are just dying these days. No longer can we say death is for the elderly. Death has no face, it doesnt regard age nor status. As youth let us draw closer to Christ and make our election and calling sure.

  55. Is that so?

    I was very sorry to read this news another young and aspiring Dominican has passed. condolences to the family may his soul rest in peace. however i must comment on the last sentence and make the necessary corrections. Mr. Popo is not in the company of the Heavenly Father, but instead his breath has gone back to the lord and body will be back in the ground where he will be awaiting judgment day.
