Dear Editor,

The Jamaica Council of Churches is saddened by the gruesome death of Dr Lynvale Bloomfield, Member of Parliament for Portland Eastern, and expresses condolence to the bereaved family and friends.

Our deepest sympathies and condolence to his family, as well, to the other Jamaican families who have recently suffered the loss of loved ones under tragic circumstances. We offer our prayers for comfort, strength and peace as you grieve. We pray also that those responsible for the grief you bear will be brought to justice.

The Jamaica Council of Churches reminds all members of our society that life is sacred and that we are called to be our neighbour's keeper.

We cannot continue to take the lives of each other, we must seek instead to protect and preserve the lives of our fellow citizens.

Rev Gary Harriott

General secretary

Jamaica Council of Churches
