On behalf of the board and members of the DP, my family and myself, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the late Chantal Ringeling. St. Maarten has lost a dedicated educator, one who showed her love for children within and outside of the school walls. Her service to country, through her beloved Lions Club will long be remembered. She fought a  brave and valiant fight against  cancer, but  lost in the end. We pray that her family will find peace and strength during this difficult time. May her soul rest in peace.

Sleep softly, Chantal.
