House observes minute’s silence

Both sides of the parliamentary divide found common ground today when a minute’s silence was observed as a gesture of respect for the mother of Member of Parliament for St John Mara Thompson.

Cicely Monica Giraudy, 82, died in St Lucia on July 1 and was cremated following a funeral service on July 8. Thompson, the widow of late Prime Minister David Thompson, is St Lucian by birth.

The House of Assembly stood in silence at the beginning of today’s session.

Speaker Michael Carrington also announced that a letter of condolence would later be forwarded to her Giraudy’s surviving relatives in St Lucia.

    hal austtn; that is a very idiotic comment to poat. even the most incosequential gathering or association of persons would observe an event such as the death of the mother of one of their peers.
