FNM Mourns Mayaguana Deaths

Free National Movement (FNM) Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis extends his condolences to the family members of the three persons killed in the accident that occurred in Mayaguana early Thursday morning.

Dr. Minnis in a press statement yesterday praised one of them, Mrs. Edith Barnes-Collie saying,
“Mrs. Collie gave the FNM and the country her sons Hilbert and Sydney Collie and her daughter-in-law, Mavis Johnson-Collie, all of whom have dedicated almost their entire adult lives to public service.”

The FNM leader hailed the victims as ‘unsung heroes’ after they died while doing a service to others.

“These countrymen and the contributions they make are never publicised and too often go without celebration. So often, the contributions they make are reflected in the lives of the people they touch, shape and mold. That is how they bless the rest of us,” he said.

He said that we are reminded once again of the frailty of human life and that none of us knows the day or the hour when we will be called home to meet our maker.

Dr. Minnis said the FNM grieves with the families during this difficult time.

“We will keep them and everyone in the Mayaguana community in our prayers,” he said.

Mr. Collie is the former member of parliament for the Blue Hill Constituency.
