This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Thabang Tsotetsi, 26, born on July 6, 1986 and passed away on November 3, 2012. We will remember him forever.
"It's a year exactly today!!! Time has flown by so quickly, yet the memories of U r still very much alive. There shall never be one like U, u were God sent indeed!"
"You'll forever be a friend, memories shared will live in my mind forever.
You are truly missed, will always love you."
"THE FIRST THING I WOULD HAVE DONE TODAY IS WHATSAPP YOU #SIGH. JUST ONE OF OUR BRILLIANT MOMENTS THAT WE USE TO SHARE #SOB. WISH THE WAS A PLACE WERE WE COULD MEET JUST FOR 'THIS MOMENTS' I MISS YOU MAN, I DONT THINK I'LL EVER GET USE TO THIS."
"Hey T'bang...still waiting for that day when it gets easier to think of you as gone. Loving you still my friend..."
"Minister you will always remain in our hearts, and your memories will always be shared among us. Though i won't be able to make it to your unveiling tomorrow. I'm with you in heart and soul."
"I can't believe I will miss ur unveiling, if it was by choice, I was gonna be the first one there. This doesn't mean I care or love u any less, Buhle is in a deeper need of me now. I pray that it all go well and smooth, that it will bring closer the ones u parted from. I know u would have nodded facing down with ur pinky in ur mouth, saying u understand. Gosh it still hurts!"
"Its only few hours before the unveiling and I'm still in tears coz its like a moment away wen I found out u were gone forever,I know u found healing,peace and rest in heaven nd I'm sure u r looking down on us smiling coz of da love we have for you,we will always miss you nd tomorrow we get to celebrate the beautiful life God once blessed us with,we will always miss nd love you Chako"

"As the tombstone date approaches, its not getting any easier. *deep sigh* miss u"
"Oh my dear Thabang, it doesn't get any easier that you gone. I remember a convo we had about God and all I could think is why He'punished us by taking you. But I got reminded thru the birth of my twins that God formed u in your mother's womb, He allowed us to have met and shared times with you. We can't keep questioning His will but try accept and move on...♡♥♡ Always"
"It doesn't get any easier thout the pain is different wit each day,I remember when I told how Ora's shirt"Like father like son" reminded me of my son's dad passing you said to me" its never easy to loose someone close and that I should take comfort in the fact that he left me with a gift",I miss you dearly papa Oratilwe"
"every day i keep hoping i'll rcv a whatsapp msg 4rm u but ntn i thot i'd be used to it by now but no...

Thulani M am expecting you to help out cause i know T-bang would want u 2. thank you..."
"Mosele' Thabang sister says to tell you guys that the Tsotetsi family will be having a tombstone unveiling for Thabang on his birthday (6 July 2013). She knows that it will be cold but thinks it will be appropriate considering the day. So please let everyone of Thabang's friends know"
"i miss you"
"Thabang, had a wierd dream about u hle that u returned from death & everybody was filled with joy and relief, it was awkward but u remained calm and overwhelmed... Woke up & I couldn't believe it was a dream coz it felt super real.
In our dreams & memories u'll always live. U such a great soul T, forever missed indeed!"
"Oh my gosh this is all so surreal…still. It felt really good being with your family yesterday, I know you were there in spirit! I love you my friend…always! (*teary*)
God bless your soul..."
"Ooohn Thabang…. I still can’t get used to the idea that you are gone….I remember the last the conversation I had with you..we had agreed to go see the Soil and the Muffin at the market theater …you went to go see the Muffin and you sent me an sms telling me I shud have been there… I wished I had gone there with you to see you one last time…my your Soul Rest in Peace"
"Days later after you have passed - I still feel the gap that you have left - I will miss you forever - your spirit will live on in our hearts in our minds and through Oratilwe - God Bless Your Spirit my friend!!!"
"Thabang, even after ur funeral I'm still left in tears. I really don't understand how God works but I will not argue with him coz He knows wats best for us.

We now all gained an angel that knows us personally. Gomotsegang losika ledi tsala. May your kind soul rest in peace Thabang.""
"Earth has lost and heaven has gained. Thabang “Chako” Tsotetsi you will be sadly missed by us all.

I hold back the tears from rolling down my chicks as I recall on the good and difficult times we’ve shared"
"This has truly been a sad day for us as it was for all of Thabang's friends. I know he has gone to a better place but he shall remain with all of us in our hearts. I have professionally known Thabang for almost a year and he was greatly respected for his knowledge within technical team. He was truly a good team member and will be missed. May he rest in peace"

"Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die."
