Kamla mourns activist’s loss

By SEAN DOUGLAS Tuesday, June 17 2014

PRIME Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar yesterday issued a statement to commiserate with Nicholas Morris, United National Congress (UNC) Youth Arm leader, whose father died in a road accident last Saturday in San Fernando.

Persad-Bissessar offered the party’s heartfelt condolences to Nicholas upon the loss of his father, Wilfred Morris, 47, who was in the prime of his life.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic blow to the Morris family, especially coming at a time when the world is celebrating Fathers’ Day,” she said.

“We empathise with Nicholas who grew up in our party and remains one of the more dedicated members of the family. Today he needs the strength to deal with the tragic circumstances that now face him and we in the UNC stand with him every step of the way.”

Persad-Bissessar said it is hard to say goodbye to a loved one, especially in circumstances of this tragedy, and saying goodbye to a loving father on a day dedicated to honouring fathers is much more so.

She said in our collective grief we take solace in the knowledge that Wilfred Morris is now in the arms of our loving Father, the Almighty who keeps watch over us and guides our lives. “We pray for Nicholas and the rest of the family to celebrate everything that Wilfred Morris represented as a father, a husband and friend. His passing leaves a void that no one can fill. But he will remain immortal through his deeds and the love he had for his family.”

Persad-Bissessar said that just as we accept God’s will, that we must now surrender the mortal body that provided shelter for the immortal soul, we now pray for the passage of that soul to reap its just rewards in the presence of the Creator.
