Linis White, 65, and her son 25 year old Kevon were laid to rest in Tobago last Thursday. Mourners came out in their numbers at the Calvary Road Deliverance Tabernacle, Bon Accord to say their final farewells. For the past four years Kevon was a fire officer attached to the Piarco Fire Station, while his mother of Parlatuvier Tobago was a retired employee of the Hall of Justice.
Both were found dead at their Arima home on November 3rd, chopped to death. Also found dead nearby was the family dog.
The sermon was delivered by Reverend Dr. Vernon Arthur, who called on the packed congregation to focus on the lives of Linis and Kevon and the joy they brought.
"They are in a resting place now, comfortable in the arms of the Lord. They don't have to go through the rigors of life like we have too," Reverend Arthur said.
Arthur told the congregation to believe in the resurrection, as someday Linis who was a member of the Calvary Road Church will be rewarded for her good work. In attendance were THA Chief Secretary Orville London and representative for Parlatuvier Tracey Davidson-Celestine. The internment took place at the Parlatuvier Public Cemetery where both were laid to rest.
