:( Siobain and family.....So sorry to hear about your sad loss.

Remember.... God will definitely show you the way to smiling again. I know this experience will change you forever. Just remember all the good times you shared with your father and all the love he gave you throughout the years. He is not gone. He will live in your heart forever. God Bless.

Thank you all most sincerely for your wonderful messages and heartwarming, supportive presence in our lives. We feel as if you're all part of our close family. What wonderful human beings you all are. The funeral will be on Friday at 11 a.m. in Bloemfontein, and we're expecting a large gathering. As Siobain said, he was a man of Kruger, visiting as often as he was able. He was also a successful businessman and well-known in Bloem. All lives must close at some stage, and we can but remember him for the good things that he was. For, in the mind, a person lives forever.

OWN and Siobain

Have been out of touch for a couple of days and have only now come across this news - deepest sympathies. Your father is now at peace, Siobain but has left you with many happy memories.

to those who have given their support to me and my mother, thank you so much and what a wonderful group of friends you are.

Things are not good at the moment. Mother sailed through the operation and did well for the days after. Unfortunately, her body has not settled and she is constantly on a saline drip, which means if things do not improve, she must go into a nursing home.

Thank you for your prayers,

Kathy
