"i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
"Beloved beautiful man, you are always with me."
"Alastair was my cousin. Although we lived a long way from each other, whenever we saw each other or spoke on the phone or exchanged an email the closeness we shared was tangible. I particularly remember going for a run with him when we were visiting Durban one time. He was not just a cousin but my friend. I'm not much of a believer of religion so I will continue to remember and treasure those wonderful moments we shared in his life. Derek Moir"
"I never had the privilege of meeting this fine man and attorney, but I got to learn about him from one of his best mates, Craig, since the early days of my articles in 2008. Today, as he does ever so often, Craig shared some of his awesome memories of Al, and we celebrated the memory of him. Al is always remembered by us. Xx"
"Dearest Son. Mum and I think of you especially on this the 49th anniversary of your birth. We continue to love and miss you as we both will do as long as we live. Dad. xxx"
"Hi Alastair, I cannot remember the last time I saw you but I was very saddened about your passing. Anyway, I just uploaded some photos of us from the good 'ol days at Clifton.
(By the way, I'm the one holding the rugby ball)"
"It is six years ago today that Alastair died. We continue to mourn his loss which has left a void in our lives that will never be filled. We treasure the happy memories and are grateful for the good times that we shared with him. Our deep love for him will never die! Mum & Dad. xxx"
"2015/11/02 : 6 years ago we lost an amazing, awesome boss. A wonderful kind gentleman with whom I had the privilege of working for, from the inception of his firm. A hardworking, pedantic and sometimes demanding boss, a man of exceptional integrity, was compassionate , caring and generous. His sense of humour, funny office antics, quirky moments and laughter are still talked about. Remembering your mischievous "boss" smile still brings many a smile. Always remembered .
"Alastair your light shines even brighter in our hearts with the 48th candle. You are in our thoughts daily and remembering your mischievous ways still manages to bring a smile amongst the sadness.
I will have a glass of Zinfandel for you later. x Cindy"

You can run and not grow weary.
You are so loved and longed for.

Within my heart they still shall dwell
And they shall cheer and comfort me.

"Alastair was a friend that will never be forgotten. He made me laugh when I was sad, was there to help me when I needed somebody. I still remember most of the jokes he told me especailly the "attorney" jokes. I will never forget him and hope to meet him again one day and continue our friendship. Miss you a lot."
"Dear Lord, thank you for letting me share in Alastair’s life. I will remember his wit, his forthrightness, his ability to see problems from many perspectives, and the advice he generously dispensed when I needed it. I am sad that he is no longer with us here but I am grateful for the time we did spend together and look forward to catching up with him when you decide to call me home. Amen."
"Alastair was a truly great lawyer. He is always spoken about & remembered fondly for his amazing office antics & his funny quirks. During the years that I worked for Alastair & with him as his partner, I had come to admire & respect him & most of all appreciate the knowledge he imparted to me. He was a man of exceptional intergrity & he is deeply missed today & will always be remembered!"
"After the stillness finds you
After the winds of change
All that is good and true between us
This will remain the same.
