Tears as mom, 3 kids buried

JamaicaObserver.com: "THE deafening rumble of thunder over the Sandy Park community yesterday was not enough to drown out the cries of the hundreds of mourners who gathered to bade farewell to four of the six family members who died last month when their house was swept away by flood waters from Tropical Storm Nicole.
As the service proceeded under a light but persistent drizzle, family members and friends wept openly at the sight of the four caskets in the small Sandy Park Seventh Day Adventist Church in Liguanea, St Andrew, with the remains of 34-year-old mother Skeeta Young, her children Keniji Boyd, 14; Sydonnie Bailey, six; and four-year-old Kevonnie Bailey.
