Lyndhurst Funeral Home is this year celebrating 33 years of operation in Dominica and is showing appreciation for the support received from the public over the years.
On Wednesday, the Lyndhurst Funeral Home awarded two scholarships to two children who will begin secondary school in September.
The first scholarship was awarded to 12 year old Shea Marie of Massacee who is the grandson of Florence St. Jean. St. Jean has been with the company for 18 years.
Shea Marie who will attend the Dominica Grammar School says that he is ready to work hard and is happy for the help. Some of his favorite activities are playing sports, video games and hanging out with his friends and family.
Shea thanked Lyndhurst Funeral Home for the assistance in meeting some of his academic needs.
The second scholarship went to 13 year old Jaden Cuffy who is the son of long serving employee whose face is almost synonyms with Lyndhurst Funeral Home, Kelvin Cuffy.
Jaden will attend the St. Mary’s Academy.
He says, “I enjoy reading in my spare time and of course, gaming with my friends online. Some of my favorite books to read in my free time are Diary of a whimpy Kid and the ever popular Shivers.”
He says that he will put the scholarship to good use by performing well.
Note: Jaden Cuffy’s sister received on his behalf.
Meanwhile, Lyndhurst Funeral Home also gave certificates of appreciation to a number of community persons who have partnered with them and who are essential to their success such as community helpers, grave diggers, their exclusive coffin builder, accountant and florists.
