GRIEF FOR SOOKOO: Friends and relatives in grkef as they watch the body of Kristian Sookoo alight on the pyre at the Waterloo Cremation site yesterday...

Kristian Sookoo, the 19-year-old teenager, who was killed in a vehicular accident on the Uriah Butler highway last Sunday, was given an emotional farewell by his friends during his funeral service at the Waterloo cremation site yesterday.

As several of his friends wore blue printed t-shirts with his face emblazoned on the back, a number of former schoolmates performed a freestyle “break-dance” routine to the strains of the P Diddy tribute to the Notorious B.I.G “I’ll be missing you” in front of the casket just before it was placed on the pyre

Then, to the haunting strains of the Band Perry’s song — “If I die young, bury me in satin”, his casket was gently placed on the pyre by his friends who hugged each other and wept openly as the fire was lit, consuming the white casket. And, almost to echo another line of the song in which the singer urges her friends to “lay me down in a bed of roses”, Sookoo’s friends covered his body with long-stemmed red roses.

Earlier in the funeral service at Sookoo’s home at 115 Bonito Street, Lange Park, Chaguanas. Missionary Baptist Church pastor, Rev Dr Sentoma Jaggernath, recalled that Sookoo had promised his mother, Ruth, on Mother’s Day that he would “build a house” for her.

“He said he would build a house for his mother, but he is gone now,” Jaggernath said, but noted, “he has gone to a house not made with hands, a house eternal in the heavens.”

Jaggernath also advised the large number of young persons in attendance to read the Bible and “find out what happens after death”. He said according to the Holy Scriptures, there was life after death, of which every human being had to face at one time or another. According to reports, Sookoo lost his life when the car in which he was a passenger, blew a tyre and crashed into a drain off the southbound land of the Uriah Butler highway.
