“On behalf of the United Democratic Party, I just want to say respect to the family. I want to honour my brother and friend, Herbie Panton. Indeed, “kilich kalach”. He would appreciate if I were to say right now “Right now da me and you Herbaz” but da mostly you, and I am sure that you and Raindrops and Raibo will hold it down til wi get deh. Wi nuh di rush fi goh deh yet, you know. But hold it down til wi get deh and notice ah neva she heaven or hell. But in all seriousness, it is a celebration of a life but a very, very sad day. We will miss you Herbie. We will always remember the great times we had with you, the love, the brutal honesty, and if you’re a true friend you’re a true friend. And he was a true friend to all and sundry.”
