PORTRAIT RECEIVED IN BELGIUM: Sgt Vincent Pedican, seen here with the winning portrait of his father, Vincent Pedican Sr. who was murdered in Grand Bahama in 2007. The murder is still unsolved.

BELGIUM - Sgt Vincent Pedican receives his portrait of his father Vincent Pedican Sr. in Belgium where he and his wife live while on military leave from Afghanistan during his tenure with the US Army. The portrait was g ifted to him by his wife, Latoya Pedican who entered The Bahamas Weekly's promotion with The Celebrity Artist,  Jamaal Rolle.

"Big S/O to Jamal Rolle, and The Bahamas Weekly team for the drawing. I am very humbled by the gesture. Thank you all for making this a reality," said Sgt Pedican over Facebook.

"My husband’s father lost his life in November 2007 when he was kidnapped from his job at Eight Mile Rock High School and then murdered. I recall the day when my husband (Vincent Charles Pedican) called devastated because the last voice message from his father was deleted from his phone. It was all he had left...his voice," said Latoya Pedican when writing to enter the promotion.

"My husband often talks about the anguish of never knowing how or why his father died, and reflects on the year before his passing, when for the first time he truly got to know the man whose name he carries. He holds on to those memories tightly. His father Vincent “Doc” Pedican was a stellar man from what I’ve been told, a well known Grand Bahamian fondly missed by all who knew him. For this reason I would love to have a portrait of my father in law drawn, as a keepsake to my husband, his grand children and to the future generations of Pedicans, that were not allowed the privilege to meet this well-loved man."

Celebrity Artist, Jamaal Rolle has drawn and presented life-like portraits to Oprah, His Royal Highness Prince Harry, Sir Sidney Poitier, Johnny Depp and Justin Bieber just to name a few, and is becoming famous in his own right.
