    I would like to thank Rayne for her kindness at my son's Memorial Service today, she was very patient and understanding with me! It's reporters like her that will go far in reporting the news with a heart. Keep up the good work.

    May he rest in peace and may the community reach out to his family as they will surely need their faith and the support of the community during these times and the future ahead.
