The passing of the late Sir John George Melvin Compton has evoked widespread expressions of grief in Saint Lucia and overseas.  The funeral service for Sir John will take place on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Castries.


It is customary on such occasions for well-wishers to express their sympathy through flowers and wreaths. Whilst such a gesture would be appreciative, the family of Sir John thinks that he would have preferred if the resources spent on flowers and wreaths were instead used towards a needy cause.


With this in mind, the family has established the Sir John Compton Scholarship Fund, for which an account has been opened at the Bank of Nova Scotia. The proceeds from this account will be used to assist needy children in pursuing their education, an issue to which Sir John committed himself with such passion. The account number is 1011933.


The family would therefore like to encourage all persons and/or organisations wishing to donate flowers or wreaths, to instead make a financial contribution to the Sir John Compton Scholarship Fund at Account Number 1011933 at the Bank of Nova Scotia.
