In the early hours of yesterday morning, Hunter's grandfather passed away, at the ripe age of almost 90. He had a full and good life and the last 6 months have been rather difficult for him as his body slowly started to shut down. I never knew any one of my grandfathers - they both passed away before I was born, so I always thought that it was rather special that my kids had a great grandfather who had their pictures on his walls and phoned on their birthdays and took great pride in. We saw him for the last time in December when we actually made the trip to Port Elizabeth to say our goodbyes. He was tired and warn down, but happy to see his little name bearers - the twins each carry one of his names as their second name. We did not take any pictures then, it was just sad to see him so sick, so I would rather show you how we would like to remember him.
Totsiens Oupa Hennie. Mooi loop.
