St Lucy residents hold vigil for Shemar


Share post:

IT HAS BEEN just over two weeks since Shemar Weekes died under tragic circumstances, but he has not been forgotten.

The Checker Hall, St Lucy community, which was rocked by the news of his suspected suicide, came together late yesterday evening to have a candlelight vigil in his memory, offer words of comfort to each other and the grieving family, and encourage each other to be their brothers’ keepers.

His three buddies, Keshawn Griffith, Azikiwe Pierre and Rashad Husbands, with whom he engaged in the usual after school games on the same evening of his death, led the short procession through the neighbourhood bearing a placard with the 12-year-old’s smiling face.
