Farewell Kimberly

The Church of the Nazarene was packed to capacity this afternoon, as many came to pay their last respects and celebrate the life of 28-year-old Kimberly Lovell who lost her life in a suspected murder-suicide last month.

The body of Lovell, a mother of two, was discovered with several wounds on May 29, in her Bayland, St Michael home, while the body of her husband, Derek, was found hanging.

A small crowd was present outside the church, as family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances came to say goodbye to this once vivacious, bubbly and energetic young woman.

Nurses from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, including those from the recovery department, were present at the service.  They entered the church in a single file, clad in white with a green sash marked ‘recovery room’.

Kimberly’s casket is placed in a hearse following the service.

There was also a performance from local artiste Dwane Husbands in the service which was held to celebrate Kimberly’s life rather than mourn her tragic death. (KK)

    My deepest sympathies and condolences to your family and friends, and may you get what you earned both in the grave and the afterlife for what you did and was, when you were living in this world’s life. And from the day we were born, we were destined to die, whether it be 10 years or 70, we all are terminal at some point in this thing we call life.

    I suspect you meant the Nazarene Church on Collymore Rock.

    This didn’t have to be this way, if only the relatives of them both had intervened in a practical way. Sometimes we as human beings just have to assist each other and all this pain and regret will be avoided. I’m so sorry for the innocent kids who have lost both their parents, unfortunately nobody thought about them when decisions were being made.
