Basseterre, St Kitts, February 24, 2020 – Leon Natta-Nelson, the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) candidate for St Christopher 7 has expressed shock and sadness at the sudden passing on Sunday of well-known plumber Glenroy “Mack” Woodley.
In a FaceBook posting expressing sympathy on the passing of Woodley, whom he called a friend, Natta-Nelson noted that despite supporting different political parties they both respected each other’s position and views.
“Just last week he drove on the street where I reside. We had our usual chit-chat and laughed away at our differences of opinion. A few weeks earlier, we engaged each other joyfully at a birthday party in Mansion. We humored the crowd with our difference perspective on politics. We laughed at each other, we joked but more so, we respected each other,” said Natta-Nelson.
“My memory of Mack will be seeing him in his green pickup, listening to him as he called the radio programs, always talking to someone, joking around and of course being a plumber, that was his craft being a plumber. Well maybe his craft was talking because Mack loved to talk,” recalled Natta-Nelson, pointing out that some people tend to get angry and easily embrace hate especially when it comes to politics.
“Mack loved his politics, He was an ardent supporter for his cause. I am happy that we embraced each other and respected each other’s position and opinion,” said Natta-Nelson.
“We know not the time, nor the hour when death will visit us. Today for Mack, tomorrow for someone else. I hope, I pray that like Mack and I respected each other, that, that may be the example that encourages others to do so,” he said.
In offering his deepest and sincere condolences to the bereaved family, Natta-Nelson said it is not easy to deal with death of a loved one.
“I say to you, turn to the Lord for strength, strength that each and every one of you can manage the pain in hopes that one day you may overcome. RIP Mack,” he concluded.
