|Let the memory of Hepworth Xigagane Hlongwane be with us forever|
"August the 2nd marks the anniversary of your birth.
It's been 3 years since you departed and not a day goes by without a thought/s of you & I get now that it's in our hearts,our memories,our dreams you will forever live...differently but a very real part of us. Yesterday was too hard that's for sure. You would have turned 40 and the biggest #mindphuck is still not knowing what to do really on days like these. A candle still seemed appropriate; & sure enough Tenashe made the birthday link and started singing"
"My brother even today, I am struggling to make peace with your absence in my life. You have been a great brother, I always remember you with emotion. The journey we have travelled together makes it difficult and impossible for this day, your birthday, to pass without the emotion visits me. When this day comes I feel your presence though we can't catch up, I do that by myself and have faith in me that you do the same. Majuta"
"So many questions.Not enough answers. As far as logic can go the heart is still not satisfied...prompting the mind to seek more reason.
What I know in this moment is that all questions are answered completely by love. I smile because I know you know that. And it's at this moment of reckoning, I know you are smiling back and I have no questions...only love."
"Ke go gopotše Xigagane...
Just got home from a drive le Tinashe bumping Lemar reminiscing about days when we did those drives bumping Lemar...not the same.
I miss you motho-waka. Kudu kudu ka matla a go se lekane le selo... A ke tsebe gore ke dire eng."
"sending a #specialshoutout to the heavens as we remember u on ur birth day ❤"
"So this doesn't get better with time?!? OK, so what must happen now?"
"Most times I wish heaven had visiting hours...especially today. Ke dula ke go gopotše hle monna."
"On a day like this you would say, apeya bogobe re bese nyana. Le lebotlolo nyana"
"Mapikeri would be very proud right now. You took the journey with me my brother and delivered me, now I know what to do!"
"I miss you my brother, we had great time together. The love we shared, I will forever be greatful for God given opportunity to share those moments together."
"Got Lemar "it's not that easy" on repeat. Thinking bout you."
"27 April 2013, stood at your graveside knowing that life as I knew it,was over."
"I cherish the love and joy you gave me."
"Rest well my king"
"Left me with a beautiful daughter...a living memory of you but your absence is absolute grief. No warning no goodbye, but memories of you will never die. Days pass but thoughts of you always stay, wondering if you see me...if you see us. Do you?"
"Words are few, thoughts are deep"
"T & I went to visit koko ko Mams this past Sunday. A beautiful day spent with Ntsako,Tiyani,Glen giving us a "show" of note in prep for Easter #chucklesfordays. Ke dula ke go gopotše ka nako tšohle"
"Miss your beautiful soul."
"Nano is growing..had no way to reach her on Friday but all is well.I know she had a fab bday. Mine is a few days..missing you"
"Friday 7 Feb '14, 10 months later..your replacement ko SARS appointed.
I remember @ ur memorial they spoke about the inspiring leader you were and how brilliantly you executed your work (*shine). You were outstanding in more than 1 area of your life. I wish I could replace you and just fill the hole in my heart, the hole in my life. Tendai you are simply irreplaceable."
"Well..........what else can I say? You lived, did your thing and now you gone, that's it. You gone.....*sigh*"
"Thinking of you my love. I miss you dearly, wondering what it would've been like to have you walk with me on this parenthood journey. you were the best dad to Nano, I know for a fact you would've been awesome with our bundle..i wonder if you see us, if you feel us, if you miss us like we miss you. oh God"
"Gone too soon..."
Have a suggestion for us?
