V.I. Answer Desk: Condolences for Sen. Berry's Family

Reader Andrea Thomas writes from the States, asking where to send a card to the family of former Sen. Lorraine Berry, who died July 19, as well as where to order flowers.

Catherine Bryan, a friend of the Berry family, says the mailing address is: P.O. Box 522, St. Thomas, V.I. 00804.

Tributes may be e-mailed to atributeforsenatorberry@gmail.com or, for local residents, hand-delivered to the Office of Senate President Louis Patrick Hill no later than July 26.

As for flowers, a Google search turns up numerous local florists.

Services for Berry will be held at 10 a.m. July 31 at Ss. Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Cathedral on St. Thomas, following a musical prelude at 9 a.m. Berry, 60, died July 19 after an almost year-long battle with cancer. Burial will follow at the Lady of Perpetual Help Cemetery in Estate Mafolie.

The longtime senator will lie in state in the Earle B. Ottley Legislative Hall at the Senate Building on Friday, July 30.
