Member of Parliament for St. Mary South East St. Mary, the People’s National Party’s Dr. Winston Green, was laid to rest on Saturday.
Dr. Green died on August 14 after he fainted at home and was rushed to the Andrews Memorial Hospital in St. Andrew.
A number of his parliamentary colleagues turned out to Dr. Green’s Thanksgiving Service to pay their final respects.
They include MP for St. Andrew Eastern, Fayval Williams, MP for St. Mary Western, Robert Montague, Speaker of the House, Pearnel Charles, MP for St. Catherine North Western and PNP Chairman, Robert Pickersgill, and the party’s General Secretary Julian Robinson.
The man who’s seeking to replace Dr. Green as MP, Dr. Shane Alexis, was present.
President of the PNP Dr. Peter Phillips, says Dr. Green was loyal to the party, but he never practiced political tribalism.
The party leader is calling on others to devote themselves to continue Dr. Green’s mission of building a better Jamaica.
The service was held at the St. Andrew Parish Church in Half Way Tree. Dr. Green was laid to rest at Meadowrest Memorial Gardens in St. Catherine.
