Makoi Methodist High School Year 12 student, Viliame Koroinivalu, has accepted the death of his beloved father and soldier, the late 50-year-old Vilikesa Raibevu.

Mr Raibevu, of the Logistics Unit of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, was accorded a military funeral at Nasinu cemetery yesterday.

The funeral followed a church service at the Delaivalelevu Methodist Church.

Viliame said they had just celebrated his father’s 50th birthday at their home two weeks ago before he was taken to hospital.

He said his father, who went to India for medical treatment in 2012, was a real family man and while he had accepted his death, he would really miss him.

He will now live a life without a father. He said this new life was new to him but he had to adapt to it very quickly.

“I still have my loving mother and it is time for my four brothers and sister, together with my parent’s adopted son, to help her.”

He said he would now prepare for his examination in a few weeks’ time and would work hard to achieve his dream of becoming a teacher.

He said he had promised his father he would be a teacher.

The Commander of the RFMF, Brigadier -General Mosese Tikoitoga and some senior officers were present at the funeral.

The Last Post was played to honour their former comrade who hailed from Levukana, in Vanuabalavu.
