Alecia Robb never imagined that less than seven years after opening a business with her partner, Delano Christie, she would become the sole operator.

The couple operated D’s First Choice Ice-Cream and Pastries in Norwood, St James. Christie and the couple’s nine-month-old daughter were killed in a gun attack last November.

Robb was overcome with emotions last Thursday as the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) honoured Christie, a beneficiary of the Integrated Community Development Project II (ICPD II), with a posthumous award.
