Death after supper at mum’s


Share post:

On Wednesday evening, Lester “George” Holder ate supper at his mother’s house, unaware that it was going to be his last.

And during the meal, they made plans which Elizabeth “Patricia” Holder is heartbroken will never come through.

“He come in from work, he sit down, he said he wanted soup so I made some, he drank it and went in the room and stretch out on the floor.”

She said: “I washed some clothes for him and when he get up . . . he turn and ask what’s for breakfast tomorrow. I said I will make plantain, eggs and oats. He said: ‘See you in the morning about quarter to six’ and I tell him okay and I watched him going up the road.”

That would be the last time the 69-year-old would see her oldest child. (TG)
