A Nation Mourns

Prime Minister of Barbados, the Honourable David Thompson, has passed away.

According to reports, the Prime Minister died at his private residence in St. Philip at 2:10 a.m.

He was diagnosed in September with pancreatic cancer after undergoing medical tests since May.

At the moment, Cabinet is in session and we await word on who will be sworn in as the next Prime Minister of Barbados, more than likely DPM Freundel Stuart.

On behalf of Cheese-on-Bread, I wish to extend deepest condolences to the PM's family, friends, colleagues and to my fellow Barbadians at this difficult time.

He’s Gone Too Soon

Honorable David J H Thompson, the Prime Minister of Barbados
Expired peacefully and is no longer with us
Suffers no more with arduous pain

Gone Too Soon but his legacy will remain
Our Prime Minister was foremost a family man and friend
Never gave up his will to help others through to the end
Endured in faith and led us responsibly

Took time for all Bajans and especially
Our Prime Minister ruled among us, walked where we would
Over the lengths and breadths of each neighborhood

Showed us to treat each other like one big family
One nation of Peace, Love and Unity
Oh how it hurts that this great servant of the people is gone
Now we mourn, He’s Gone Too Soon but his legacy will live on
