On behalf of the Government and People of St. Kitts and Nevis, I extend very deep sympathy to the family and friends of The Honorable Dr. Simeon Daniel.
Dr. Simeon Daniel, the first Premier of Nevis has left an indelible mark on the island of his birth – from the lives he touched as a result of his outstanding services as a lawyer, to the many ways in which his efforts served to transform the island of Nevis for the benefit of Nevisians, and indeed all who visit there today.
A founding member of the Nevis Reformation Party, Dr. Simeon Daniel committed himself to be a part of the pivotal decisions and the debates that would set the course of life in Nevis and, as a result, he had a direct impact on the social, political, and economic evolution of the island.
His was a life in which God-given talents were, through sustained effort and dedication, realized. And with his passing, we mark the end of an important era.
May he rest in peace.
I would also like on behalf of my Government to extend to the Government of the Hon. Joseph Parry, the present premier of Nevis, our full support as his colleagues go through this period of mourning as we too of the Federal Government, go through this period of mourning.
