    This is the time more than ever before for the Government to call a National Day of Prayer for the country. A National Day of Prayer should not be called only after a natural disaster like Ericka which took lives. These deaths for all kinds of odd reasons need to stop. Are we not a God fearing nation. We need to truly repent and go back to the foot of the cross. It is only then that God will hear from heaven and heal our land. Make this a national event and follow the example of the Bible. May God help us all. We truly need Jesus today more than ever.

      Yes. He was the son of Shirley and Eustace. The grandson of Miss Nora (Mrs. Nora Jno.-Charles nee Shillingford, now deceased).

      My deepest condolences to his family.

      May his beautiful soul rest in perfect peace.

      People of Salisbury I feel your pain, especially the Louis, Shillingford, Jno.-Charles and Harry families in the village and those in St. Joseph.
