Oya: Gone too soon


Share post:

OYA THOMPSON, the 17-year-old daughter of Prime Minister David Thompson, posted an emotional message on her Facebook page yesterday morning – a few hours after the death of her father – saying she did not expect him to “go so soon”.
Last Friday evening, Oya had posted a recent photograph, taken on a private jet, with her sitting next to Thompson – the two of them smiling for the camera. Under it she wrote: “My Twin! The one person I can depend on no matter what.”
But on the Saturday morning, she sadly added: “Never thought that after I put this pic he wud go so soon . . . . R.I.P Dad! . . . Love you always . . . u will forever be in my heart. Dec 25 1961 – Oct 23 2010.”
Immediately after this was posted, several people responded expressing their sympathy to the family.
Oya graciously thanked everyone.
She wrote: “Thanks to everyone who expressed their wishes and made sure they msged myself and my family in this hard time . . . yes he will be missed but he is in a better place now . . .  RIP Dad! love you always! Barbados lost a great man, the Perfect Prime Minister.” (MB)
