I was shocked by the news that Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson had tragically succumbed to pancreatic cancer. With the recent advances in treating cancer, I was hopeful that this relatively young man would pull through. Sadly I learned that pancreatic cancer is a deadly form of cancer, and he did not survive.

Mr. Thompson’s concern for others in his last days was most impressive. Imagine penning words like “May God comfort everyone” when you are feeling badly and know that you are about to depart this world.

Keltruth Corp. offers its condolences to his family and friends.
