It was a tearful Roderick York, best friend of the late Lennox Lloyd Jr, who had members of the Truth Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church crying after he recalled times he shared with Lloyd during a tribute he delivered at the funeral service that was held at the Portmore-based church on Saturday.
Lloyd, 15, was killed in a crash on May 29, when the bus in which he was travelling overturned during a reported chase by the Transport Authority.
It is very heartrending to know that someone of such a young age died and will never get to experience the world again.
"Lennox and I were more than just friends we were like twin brothers. We were both born April 18; we went to church together, (and) we went to school together, he said.
"After school, whoever left class first would wait on the other one, and we both came home together.
"We both loved animals, so every morning we would feed our pigeons before we went to school, and on the morning of his death, he came by my house very early to feed the birds, not knowing that was the last time we would be feeding our pigeons together", he said.
Lennox Lloyd Sr, father of the deceased, though he tried to be strong and did not cry during the service, he explained that it has been rough since his son passed.
ďI miss him badly. I wish he was here with me now. Itís very painful what Iím going through. Lennox loved to laugh and he was very obedientĒ, the grieving father reminisced.
Bishop Wyndell Rankine encouraged mourners to be prepared as there is no escaping death.
"The death of this young man should serve as a warning. If the Lord should come now, would you be left behind? Should death come suddenly, would you have the experience of being changed from mortal to immortality?
"The Bible said it is appointed unto man once to die, so there is no escape", he said.
