TARD member at the Fiji School of Medicine passes away

A very active TARD member who is studying at the Fiji School of Medicine has passed away in her room at the school campus in Suva, yesterday (Thursday).

Ms Lynly Galie (pictured on the right) who comes from Malanaofe in the Fo'ondo District was discovered dead in her room yesterday morning by a friend.

Police investigations have began and the cause of death is still not determined.

The late Lynly was a fourth year Solomon Islands Government sponsored student pursuing a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory at the Fiji School of Medicine.

Solomon Islands students and other Pacific Island friends gathered last night at the FSM campus for a memorial vigil where songs and encouragements were shared. Present were the Solomon Islands High Commission representative in Suva, other Pacific Island student association representatives at FSM, the SISA vice president, other Solomon Islands cultural group representatives and friends.

Arrangements are being finalised to repatriate the body back to Solomon Islands probably by this weekend or early next week. A memorial service is also being planned for Lynly in Suva.

The TARD family in Suva and Solomon Islands are saddened by the sudden loss of a great and vibrant person like Ms Lynly. To her friends Lynly may be a shy girl but to TARD, she was a great inspiration to many as she was always present to assist where possible in regard to the past TARD community activities in North Malaita starting from 2006. Lynly had a big heart for the grassroot community people in North Malaita. Her abrupt departure from this life will leave a huge gap in the TARD group so as the human resource base for North Malaita and even Solomon Islands.

WE BID YOU FAREWELL LYNLY AND MAY GOD COMFORT US ALL IN THIS TIME OF BEREAVEMENT. Your TARD friends will always remember you by your chatroom code name: "Ln".
