Mountain of a molehill on Cooke funeral

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Samuel Martin's 'Why Catholic Church funeral for Sir Howard?' (Gleaner, July 21, 2014) reflects the short memory, or ignorance, of our people surrounding the use of buildings for certain functions of the State.

The Gleaner could have published an accompanying editorial note that the Holy Trinity Cathedral is used because it's the largest church near to the place of interment, National Heroes Park. This would have prevented unwarranted nine-day speculation and unnecessary discussion around the legacy of a humble and remarkable citizen, the late Sir Howard Cooke.
