    • Bozey says:

      You are obviously not Bermudian or know anything about certain areas… Devil’s Hole – Talbot … Go back under your rock!!

    • Between de lines says:

      this comment was written before the name was revealed. I am Bermudian just so you know and would have recognized the surname in an instant. Unfortunately, the timing of posts do not appear to be in realtime. Sorry for your loss.

  6. Time Shall Tell says:

    As for the idiots who “dislike”…….

  14. terry says:

    The author being the one/s that wrote condolences and they were disliked.
    Was not talking about myself but it just goes to show how stupid people are when they assume.
    Oh well.

  15. fedup Nana says:

    “Between de lines”

    Whoever you are; shame on you with that heartless comment. Note:.. read between these lines… you are ~~

    • Sandy Bottom says:

      What was heartless about his comment? He offered condolences.

    • Between de lines says:

      @fedupnana and sandy bottom, i am a she and a Bermudian mother. I am also an aunt of a 22 year old Bermudian male, so when I learn of such tragedies, I immediately think of my nephew, and my heart goes out to the family.
      The comment was not made to offend but to try and remind fellow bermudians that our island is multicultural, even in sad times such as these we must remember that, and not assume that the person is Bermudian. I wrote the comment before the young man’s name was revealed, otherwise I would have known from the surname. I guess comments do not get posted in a timely fashion.

  16. DHF FAMILY says:

    R.I.P Mani Love you like life bra so so so hard to take right now

  17. Concerned Citizen says:

    I send my love to a beautiful and wonderful family, and to their community.

  18. sml says:

    So very sad. Sleep in peace young man. Condolences to his family and friends.

  19. maaida says:

    Condolences to the family from a friend and community member. May God bring his parents and siblings ease from this unimaginable sorrow. And Uthman, May your sins be forgiven, may your grave expand and bring you comfort, may you smell the sweetness of Paradise and may God raise you to a high status on the day of reckoning. I will pray for you.
    From God we come and to him we shall return. I know he can not read this so this is a simple more to others. All he has now is the prayers from others.

  20. Akhi says:

    Inna lillahi Wa inna ilaihi Rajioon – may the Rab give his family patience, sabr jameel, strength and reinforce their Iman. May br. Uthmani be granted Jannat Al-Firdaus inshallah.

    ‘It is Allah’s that takes and it is He that gives, and He prescribes a certain destiny for every matter.’ Al-Bukhari and Muslim said by the Prophet (PBUH) when He mourned the death of his son Ibrahim.

    p.s. other commentators would really please appreciate some basic courtesy and no mocking of above.

  21. Heniken says:

    Secondly, you shameful people disliking comments that are speaking to the family and friends of this young man giving them their condolences you know that Karma is vicious and God forbid someone in your family passes away and you have to deal with insensitive people such as yourselves.

    SMH so sad…..

    exemple too the other kids. please have my condolence to the family Bermuda has truly lost one of it treasure. I felt honoured to have had him worked under my supervision at Tuckers point beach club and i bet i could talk for that entire crew in saying Uthmani was a wonderfull person

  40. Bermuda123 says:

    A wonderful young man who I had the complete privilege of working with for 2 years. He had a great future. My sincere condolences to the family.

  41. Big Boss says:

    To the Talbot family, you have my sympathies. Uthmani just wasn’t a very good football player, but he was a real nice person. Having played against him a few times, he was a ‘gentleman’ on the pitch. He never seemed to get flustered or let his passion for the game, cause his to act unsportmanlike. A good, young Bermudian male, gone to soon. RIP.
