It is never easy to say goodbye, especially when we realise that we may not see that person till we meet again in Our Father’s mansion. So it was on Thursday, January 4, when teachers and pupils of Carapichaima RC Primary gathered together with the family and well-wishers of Tyler Prince Nathan Edwards for his funeral. It was a difficult moment for all present.
Tyler, nine, was a Standard Three pupil of the school. He was an enthusiastic, energetic, resilient well-rounded pupil, always ready and willing to assist any teacher at any time once the need arose.
He was often seen on many errands to the office, participating in assemblies religiously, singing and drumming – he wanted to join the school choir to play drums for Holy Mass in Standard Four. He exercised kindness to all fellow pupils.
