2010: Manning and Rowley hold hands to symbolically end their hostility
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley announced on Saturday that Patrick Manning would get a state funeral. Manning died Saturday morning at the San Fernando general Hospital.

In making the announcement Rowley also said flags would fly at half mast until the funeral.

Rowley described the former Prime Minister as "a visionary, a patriot and a Caribbean man who always strived for excellence." 

He added that Manning "made development and the well being of Trinidad and Tobago a priority and in doing so dedicated his life to serving our twin island state." 

He said up until his death Manning was a "source and inspiration to a generation of national and regional leaders who still sought his counsel even after he left public life."
