Richard Worrell passes in Brooklyn. School children loved him.

Children, staff and parents at Brooklyn’s Public School 29 mourn the loss of their cook and their friend

Bajan living-in-America Richard Worrell died on May 26th in his home in Brooklyn, New York. No cause of death has yet been released but he hadn’t been well for months and recently spent some weeks in hospital with heart problems. He has two children in Barbados.

Mr. Worrell worked as the cook at Public School 29 and judging by an article in the New York Times and the school’s website he was a good man and much loved by all. He died young at 43 years, but made a lasting good impression on everyone around him.

You really should read the tributes to Richard Worrell in the New York Times and at the school website and then ask yourself if the same good things could be said about you. I have to admit that I probably don’t measure up to the standards set by Mr. Worrell. Something to think about.
