The funeral had been delayed due to hurricanes Irma and Maria, which made it difficult to transport the body to the Territory, according to reports.

The body of Brandon K. Prentice was laid to rest at Dawson Cemetary in Carrot Bay.

      kind of "mental slip up" do occur due to habit forming memory, but let's not cast judgement without facts.

      Who among us have not seen such an occurrence here in the B.V.I. of some tourist/visitors?

      The sincerest of condolences are extended to his entire family.

      Lastly, many of us have young ones and family members residing in said country and state. Let's pray for all of their continued safety.

    Some people are so quick to run on Facebook posting RIP vaguely for others to rush to question what happened in disbelief.

    If you are going to post wait a while allow the family some time. Half a day hadn't even pass yet.

    My heartfelt sympathy to his loved ones

    sleep might've been a contributing factor also. Either way, no judgments must be cast. Continued sincerest condolences to his family.
