Emotional farewell for Shemar

It was an emotional but tense farewell as loved ones said goodbye to 12-year-old Shemar Weekes this morning.

The media was asked to leave the service which was conducted by Reverend Angela Phillips at the St Patrick’s Anglican Church and the police were called in.

Family, friends, and former schoolmates from Gordon Walters Primary School and the Coleridge & Parry Secondary School, including principal Vincent Fergusson, today fondly remembered Shemar, who was found hanging at his Fryers Well, St Lucy home on May 14.

Tears flowed as mourners took a last look at Shemar who was laid to rest in a cream-coloured shirt and tie and carried in a white and silver casket.

His body was interred at the church cemetery.
