The Church of the Nazarene was packed to capacity this afternoon, as many came to pay their last respects and celebrate the life of 28-year-old Kimberly Lovell who lost her life in a suspected murder-suicide last month.
The body of Lovell, a mother of two, was discovered with several wounds on May 29, in her Bayland, St Michael home, while the body of her husband, Derek, was found hanging.
A small crowd was present outside the church, as family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances came to say goodbye to this once vivacious, bubbly and energetic young woman.
Nurses from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, including those from the recovery department, were present at the service. They entered the church in a single file, clad in white with a green sash marked ‘recovery room’.
There was also a performance from local artiste Dwane Husbands in the service which was held to celebrate Kimberly’s life rather than mourn her tragic death. (KK)
