Providenciales, 06 Feb 2015 – By 12:15pm the entire State Funeral service for Hon Dr. Rosita Butterfield was over; well executed, touching, befitting and classy. At the Butterfield Mausoleum, Hon. Dr. Albray Butterfield Sr was very emotional, breaking down several times; there the Grandchildren as they tossed their red roses in with Dr. Rosie’s casket were visibly shaken by the farewell. We spoke to Albray Butterfield Jr. , her son.
“I think it was a beautiful send-off and I think my mother is smiling today because I think she is very proud of the send-off that the People of the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamian Government gave her. For that I say thank you to the Government, thank you to the Country, thank you to the People and thank you to the Bahamas Government and Thank you to the Royal Bahamas Police Force. Thank you.”
Hundreds turned out to the service held at the down town ball park; we have posted nearly 90 photos of the event. Follow dee242649 on Instagram.
