The couple said their ‘I dos’ at the God’s Family Ministry International Church, which is located along Red Hills Road in St Andrew. Among the attendees was Roger Marshall, the Good Samaritan who transported Kenute Jr. to the hospital after seeing him suffering from a gunshot wound on the side of the road.

Carroline, a beautiful 40-year-old bride, said that it was her faith in God along with the love and support shown by her family, friends and the wider public that helped her to get through the day.

“When I woke up in the morning, my family and l gathered around in my mother’s room and we were just there worshiping God, playing gospel some songs and giving thanks for life. He is the one that gave us strength to ensure that we pull through for that day,” the heartbroken mother told THE STAR after the hour-long ceremony.

Kenute Jr., the couple’s 15-year-old son, was murdered three days earlier as he walked to school along Liguanea Avenue in St Andrew. Carroline described her wedding day mood as “happy” but also “overwhelmed” by the fact that she and Kenute Sr. exchanged wedding vows without their son in the midst. The mother recalled ironing her son’s suit to wear at the wedding on Tuesday, a day before he was murdered.

“On my way to the church, I was there still thinking about my baby and still asking God just to give me the strength to still pull through that day. I am so glad that all of us pulled through — no tears even though some bad feelings come — but I fought it back. But God just gave us a happy moment for what is easily the worst week in our lives,” she said.

Her husband, Kenute Sr., said he was glad to have Marshall in their midst. The 49-year-old businessman and another co-worker went to the helpless teen’s aid and took him to the nearby hospital, after they saw him on the sidewalk curled up, suffering from a gaping gunshot wound in his chest.
