My SO, Siobain - who does come onto this forum from time to time under her name - has a very ill dad in ICU in Bloemfontein. He has had pneumonia and is in respiratory and renal failure. We doubt he will see the week out. Always so difficult when having to face the death of a parent - I think that must be one of the worst challenges for most of us. He has regained consciousness from time to time, but the outlook is bleak. He is 81 years old.

OWN I am thinking of you and your SO .. Never an easy time to have a parent so ill and frail
Hope you are all holding up :k

I would like to thank my forum family for all the prayers, kindness and concern you have shown, It means so much to me! Unfortunately I have the ultimate sad news to share and that is my Dad passed away at 01h30 this morning.

He was a man of great strength and lived his life to the fullest. I have him to thank for my great love of nature. He introduced me to Kruger at the age of 6 years old, I was mesmerised from that day onward.

He visited Kruger at least 3 times a year and perhaps even more frequently as he aged, his health was failing and Kruger always rejuvenated him.

He has expressed that his ashes be scattered in Kruger.

Siobain and family, so sorry to hear. :k Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
