President and Mrs. Bush Deeply Saddened by the Death of Prime Minister of St. Lucia, John Compton

Laura and I offer our condolences to the people of St. Lucia on the death of Prime Minister John Compton. The father of St. Lucia's independence, Sir John was an elder statesman of the Caribbean. We will miss his vision and leadership, and we extend our deepest sympathies to his family.
