Residents, public servants, and legislators flocked the Sea Cow’s Bay Methodist Church on Thursday for a special viewing ceremony for the late Elton Georges.
The former deputy governor died on April 4 and will be laid to rest tomorrow, April 21.
Ahead of his send-off, persons gathered at the aforementioned church facility not only to get a final glimpse of Georges’ body but also to pay early tribute to the well-admired public service retiree.
The ceremony was held under the theme, ‘A Virgin Islands Story through the Life of a Son’.
Premier Dr D Orlando Smith and Governor Augustus Jaspert were among the high-ranking officials who attended the ceremony.
Legislators such as Dr Kedrick Pickering, Julian Fraser, Myron Walwyn, and Marlon Penn also attended.
Members of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Force were also present to pay a militant tribute to the deceased.
