Dr Pamela Ann George, the wife of former Senator Emil George, has died. She was 78.

A medical doctor by profession, Pamela George died from cancer at The Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital of the West Indies on Thursday. The couple was married for 53 years and Emil George, a prominent attorney-at-law and business executive, was "devastated" by his wife's death.

"I'm pretty devastated. She is just a wonderful person," he told The Gleaner yesterday.

He added: "If I was to get married again and again and again, I would marry her."

Despite his grief though, the former senator was philosophical, saying his wife's death was "the will of the Lord".

"It is very hard, but I can accept it," he said.
