PM expresses condolences to grieving families of deceased

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit expresses sincere condolences to the family of the infant who was the victim of an unfortunate drowning in Colihaut on Sunday. His statement came while addressing a press conference held at the Ministry of Finance conference room on Monday.

“I know that this is a very devastating loss like no other for his parents and other relatives and I pray for strength and healing for them in this most difficult moment.

Skerrit continued, “May God grant them the comfort that they need and the strength that they need to really deal with this tragic loss.”

He added, “My thoughts and that of my family are with them and I intend to visit the family sometime this week.”

The Prime Minister also sympathized with the family and friends of others who succumbed due to various circumstances over the weekend.

He took a moment to send condolences to the family of former Superintendent of the Methodist Church, Reverend William Watty who passed away on Sunday. Skerrit explained that the late Dr. Watty was a Dominica citizen of great standing who worked as a Methodist Minister in Dominica, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom.

    One common thing about you labourites is how gullible you all are, you read the comment of Sousey Sal but you did not comprehend the message, he was blaming the deaths on the PM and his China Hospital, it have nothing to do with condolences and funerals.

      That is not what he was elected for. That is not his job. Be quiet and find something to do. If that is his job, then, he might as well go ahead and give every Dominican who passes away a State Funeral. Right?
