Howls of despair are something the VOICE is familiar with, particularly as the newspaper’s offices are located right next to a funeral home.
Almost daily, disheartening screams and cries pierce through the air as family members converge at the local funeral home to view the bodies of those loved and lost, for the last time. Today, it was the family and friends of Dexter ‘Dry Bones’ Felix.
A cloud of sadness seemed to cover the local funeral home as those who had been nearest and dearest to him, most still shocked that he’d lost his life so violently, said their final goodbyes.
Once the cries faded as those gathered readiest themselves to get to the church in Castries before laying him to rest, the rumbling of bikes served as a bittersweet reminder of something Dexter had once loved, which had also given him life. Just before 2 p.m., the bikers made their way to Castries, with expectations of a procession to take place there in memory of the fallen young father.
The VOICE sends out our condolences to the family and friends of Dexter “Dry Bones” Felix, may he rest in peace.
