Thank you to everyone for your condolences and kind thoughts and prayers. We appreciate your comforting support. Due to the circumstances, we will not be holding traditional services at this time. Instead, we ask that you light a candle at 2pm tomorrow, April 9th to celebrate his life.
Once the pandemic is over and it is safe to do so, we will have a memorial service in New York, and a second in Guyana, where his remains will be interred alongside my grandmother and their daughter.
Dear friends and family, on behalf of the Bacchus family, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jim Bacchus. My grandfather was a great man, loved and respected by all who knew him, and we know that this heavy loss brings a great sorrow, shared by us all. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, there are circumstantial considerations we must evaluate, and we ask that you bear with us, and grant us privacy as we navigate these terrible times. We will share information regarding services in his remembrance as soon as we can. Until then, stay safe, and remember him fondly.
