Fond memories of fallen dad, son

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Saturday, March 15, 2014

AS Asena Ravuiwasa sat beside her late husband and son's coffins at St Agnes Parish in Nabua yesterday, the only memory that came to her was their family discussion of celebrating their 22nd marriage anniversary in September.

Life will never be the same now for the Tavua nurse who will bury her lifetime partner and their son Jiutasa, 13, in her village of Nabukadra in Ra today.

"It will never be easy, especially losing two precious people in my life at the same time," Mrs Ravuiwasa said.

"I thank the Lord for being with me since the tragedy happened.

"Without Him, I wouldn't have made it through this week."

Yesterday, relatives and loved ones gathered at St Agnes Parish in Nabua where the bodies lay for a while before being taken down to Ra for the burial today.

The former police officer and his son died when their vehicle veered off the Kings Rd between Balekinaga and Wailevu and ended up in the Wainibuka River.
