I've never met this young man nor do I know the family but being of the same culture I know how close us guyanese parents are to our children. It must have been a tough time not only to see him go overseas to serve our country but to never return. My sincerest condolences to this entire family. I wish I seen this earlier to go and pay my respects to this family. I will pray that they can find some peace in their lives eventually.
