    A very nice gesture from HRH.

    Shame the PLP’s media release was limited to acknowledging “the passing of former Premier Sir David Gibbons” and in no way recognised the man’s myriad contributions to Bermuda.

    Although the Gibbons family may not even give any thought to it, I sincerely hope that this Government erects monument or makes a very significant public, permanent tribute in honour of the late Sir David Gibbons.

    Sincerely, it would be well deserved.
