Former Prime Minister of Barbados, Sir Lloyd Erskine Sandiford, returned to the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) George Street headquarters for the final time on Thursday.
And many of his former colleagues, party faithful and members of the general public, came to pay their respects as he lay in state.
Widow Lady Angelita Sandiford and other members of the family were present, and many paused to offer them condolences.
Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, former Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, accompanied by political strategist Hartley Henry; former Minister of Education Ronald Jones, former Minister of Foreign Affairs Maxine McClean, former Senator Rev. David Durant and current General Secretary of the party, Steve Blackett, were among the faces spotted at the headquarters.
Sir Lloyd, who served as Prime Minister from 1987 to 1994, will be buried Friday in a state funeral, with a service at St Peter’s Parish Church followed by interment at St James Cemetery. (SAT)
