  7. People are dying suddenly in Antigua. What did the autopsy say they died from a heart attack after the jab. It is happening all over the world, particularly with young athletes. Please tell us.

  8. My condolences to his family, friends, staff etc. Mr. Parker you will be missed. Mr. Parker was one of my teachers at the Clare Hall Secondary School in 1975 while Mr. Davis was the principal and he was a very stern teacher who really love what he does but most of all, believe in “no child left behind”.
    I’m visiting and was blessed to ran into Mr. Parker last Friday night up Gray Hill as I waited out a barber shop. I didn’t know it was my last talking with Mr. Parker but I’m happy we did speak. Sleep In Peace teacher Parker 🕊🕊🕊

  9. R.I.P. Mr Dinson Parker.
    You have given it your best. May the God
    Of Heaven and Earth comfort your teaching staff and students, especially at this time of loss and circumstances.
    Let’s us pray for the institution he has left behind. My condolences to the family and school.
