Carl Edward prosper


On November 3, 1981 Earl Edward Prosper, son of Margaret Rose
Jervier and Imbert Prosper Sr., was born on the island of St. Thomas. In
June, 1995, Earl graduated from Oliver Benjamin Elementary school lo-
cated in Estate Tutu. On August 23,1995, he began furthering his educa-
tion at the Bertha C. Boschulte Jr. High School where he concentrated on
Arts and Music. He was a very quiet and shy individual who had a
dream of becoming a singer; unfortunately, he was robbed of this dream.
Earl was always willing to learn and experiment with new things such as
electronics and mechanics and hanging out with his friends. He was
known to be a young mechanic.
On October 10, 1995 the flame that was once the life of Earl Edward
Prosper was extinguished, leaving all who knew him touched and influ-
enced. May his youthful soul rest in peace.
Suffer the little children to come onto me and forbid them not for such
is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:10.

Earl... The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away but He has prom-

the Love of God enfold you, the Power of God protect you. Wherever
you are God is and all is welL People may pass on but one thing that lives
on is love. They say nothing lasts forever, but I say true love never dies.
We loved you. God, take care of Earl for he has come home.
Love, Lisa

For You Cous .... We may never understand why or how these things
happen, but we will go on remembering the good times. We have been
family for 13 years. We shared good and bad times. Earl, only God can
explain this tragedy and why it happened. I will try to comfort myself by
remembering your smile and how serious you were about things you
wanted to triumph, like driving, mechanics and the way you made rap
music on the mic. You even made tapes of yourself singing like your
favorite raggae star Vicious. You were talented. I happy to have loved
you like my own brother. Sleep in peace, my cousin.
One Love, Ambo

(Ufsatewer you did to console our hearts.
Wti dhank you so much, whatever de part.
