We at the Belize Caye Fest wishes to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Belize's first Prime Minister, and Father of the Nation, George Cadle Price. The Belizean Prime Minister, who stands out as one of the longest reigning leaders in the Caribbean region, is the first and only Belizean Prime Minister to have accepted an invitation to attend one of the festivals, and touched the hearts of Belizeans in Los Angeles with his vibrant presence. We are very grateful for the work that he has done for the Belizean people at home and abroad. May God help us to always remember his humility and strength in this somber time, and to follow in his noble footsteps
