Thank you very much, uncle Vance, for the STERLING SERVICE rendered to your people and your country. Thank you for giving me a voice, a platform from which to help and empower others, and a seat at the decision-making table. My life and the political journey have been enriched by your advice, your wise teachings and your encouragement. You understood my struggles, and you guided me through them.

Your rich legacy has been etched in history, and you have left #Nevis a better place. As we celebrate his legacy, let us pause and reflect on the life of this Gentle Giant’, who chose PEACE over CHAOS, HUMILITY over ARROGANCE, EMPOWERMENT over DISENFRANCHISEMENT……You led with distinction.”

Minister further expressed deep condolences to his dear wife Verni, his family and the people of St Kitts and Nevis.

“May his soul rest in perpetual peace!” she concluded.
