Hey "little buddy"! You were such an amazing friend and you have left so many indelible, fond memories that I share with the family and "Warhursteeeeeee". I send all my love to Gertrude, Murray, Gillian and Ian. Alastair is never far from any of us, I'm sure. Thank you Al for the guidance and solidarity you shared. As another tribute mentions, you always had a good whit to give a quick chirp and have a laugh but your wisdom was valuable too. Thank you for those memories.

Best wishes to Murray, Gill, Gertrude & Iain and all the family. Al was more than a cousin to me, more like a best friend. Looking forward to sharing a couple of chilled brewskis down the line sometime. Derek

Think of you always and miss your quirks and chirps. Hope the dogs are keeping you good company and you are still hiding behind trees to confuse them. Will raise a glass and light the brightest candle at Christmas. You are a true a legend and sorely missed friend. Love from Cindy and Tanzi. I now have a Rossi dog as you have my Pola bear .

Dearest Al. This will be our 9th Christmas without you. Our grief remains as strong as ever. Life without you is not a full life. We did not leave a post on the anniversary of your death this year due to Murray's heart operation and absence in hospital. We, of course, nevertheless, thought about you very especially at that time. Never a day passes without our thinking of you, missing you and holding you dear. Much love from Mum & Dad. xxxxxx

Hey Al, remembering you on this day, in the absence of Craig, here at LMI. This is generally a difficult day for him, each year, but today it's a difficult one for all of us. He still needs lots more time to recover after his bike accident in April 2017, and we feel his absence at the company each day, as he felt yours in his life. Please watch over your buddy, and send love and light his way. RIP good Sir.

I went to the boys sports day yesterday and watched as Scott won all of his races and Tom tried his heart out and didn't win anything. It got me thinking about all those cups you used to win at sports day every year while I came home empty handed and wishing I could beat you, but still immensely proud of my big brother. Now I'm going to beat you to 50 - the one thing I'd never have wished to beat you at. Happy birthday boykie - I love you always x

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

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 . "RIP BOSS"

Candle lit 14 July 2013. Alastair, with that wicked sense of humour, you no longer tease Gertrud and then quickly check to see if you are being taken seriously with that quick sideways glance of yours! You are still sadly missed. J

You will not grow old, as we who are left grow old. You can run and not grow weary. You are so loved and longed for. BC&G

Alastair was a great mate and I really miss the many times we spent at Waxy's discussing business and any other topic that came to hand and generally having a good laugh.Every time I drive past Al's offices and Waxy's I think of him - miss you a lot my boy!
Posted by Cathy Van Der Walt on 5th July 2012
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.
Posted by Stuart Fourie on 16th May 2012
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!
