Three-year-old Anare Sikoa was laid to rest yesterday after an emotional church service at his home in Kistreet, Wailoku.

Anare’s body was discovered floating in the Savura Creek in Wailoku on Tuesday last week around 12:30pm. He is reported to be the nineth drowning case for September alone.

Family and friends were present in numbers to bid their final goodbye to Anare, who was described as a bubbly young boy.

In his sermon, Father Iowane Vodosiro emphasised: “In life what we teach children is very important. When children fail, we fail.”
