It is with profound sorrow that on behalf of my Wife, Patricia, the Parliamentarians, Executive Officers and members of the party, and as the Leader of the FNM, I express sincere condolences to the family of the Late William Saunders, upon his sudden and passing.
Mr. Saunders was a well known and successful entrepreneur, and pioneer in the development of Bahamian participation and ownership in the Tourism industry. His contribution to National development was truly Majestic in its scope and impact. On many occasions Mr. Saunders was known to undertake his own touristic promotional tours abroad, at his own expense, to promote his Company, Majestic Tours, and thereby to promote The Bahamas as a whole.
Mr. Saunders was also a cardinal pillar of support to the Free National Movement for decades. He extended a generous and helping hand to scores of individuals, candidates and the Party as a whole.
His vision, entrepreneurship and generosity of spirit will surely be missed by every Bahamian.
