It was a scene of grief as family members, members of the school community, politicians, and other well-wishers gathered at the North Street Seventh Day Adventist church, Sunday, to say farewell to young Benjamin Bair.
Mother of the deceased, Japhene Campbell could not be consoled during the funeral service as she cried uncontrollably. His stepfather Wayne had this to say about the boy.
Those who paid tribute to young Benjamin echoed similar sentiments about his kind, well-mannered nature.
His classmates and friends described him as faithful and dedicated.
Members of Parliament Mark Golding and Julian Robinson encouraged the family to find strength in fond memories of the young child. State Minister in the Ministry of Education Alando Terrelonge, was also in attendance.
Permanent Secretary in the Education Ministry Grace McLean says the ministry is committed and will continue to lend support to the family in the days ahead.
Benjamin Bair was the lone victim of a freak accident including a garbage truck that transpired at the Clan Carthy Primary School more than a month ago.
