Mourners of the late Trinity Azaria Moses Thomas, came out in their masses today to say farewell to the 11-year-old who was the youngest victim of a double homicide in West End three weeks ago.
The St Georges Episcopal Church on Main Street was filled with students, teachers, family, and friends who were there to celebrate Trinity’s short-lived time on earth.
During the two-hour long service, songs such as Jesus Loves the Little Children, Rejoice in the Lord Always, I’ll Fly Away, were sung in what can be described as a fitting tribute to the minor.
Instead of flowers and wreaths, stuffed animals such as teddy bears were placed at the foot of Trinity’s tiny white coffin.
The service was officiated by Rector, Ian Rock.
Trinity the young cook
Trinity who is her mother’s second child was born and raised in the British Virgin Islands. Up until her passing, she was a student of the St Georges Primary.
She was described in the eulogy as courageous and determined. And although not a great athlete, she always gave her best when participating in sporting activities.
Cooking was said to be one of the youngster’s favourite pastimes – she was particularly fond of making pasta and doughnuts.
She is survived by her parents Ramona Angels Moses and Frandi Thomas, her sister Jeshauna Winter, her close cousin Carly Ramchandran, as well as her grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins.
