St Michael family grieves sudden death of loved one
It was a gloomy Sunday for the Yearwood family of Brownes Avenue, Bayland, St Michael.
In fact, members of the household say Sunday evenings will never be the same following the sudden death of their loved one, David Yearwood.
Yearwood, 44, collapsed and died yesterday while on his customary evening stroll in the neighbourbood.
When Barbados TODAY visited the grieving family, relatives were still in shock.
His mother, Eugina Yearwood, said she was still trying to come to grips with the untimely passing of her son.
“I just can’t believe he is gone. He was good when I last saw him. He went to work as normal, he was in good spirits when he came home and he went for a walk. Next time I saw him I was identifying his body,” his mother said in disbelief.
She described her son as, “a very friendly guy,” saying, “he never really used to talk much. He was also so peaceful.”
His sister Noelle said life would never be the same for her and brothers, Adrian and Steven.
She shared that David’s voice was noticeably absent from the house and that was the most difficult.
“We all used to hang out here on Sunday evenings, laugh, have a drink and just talk. If he were here the house would be so lively. But today it’s just gloomy man. We are trying to cope but it’s really hard. ” she said, while her brothers listened in on the conversation.
