'Daley Bee'.....we were initially in each others lives as our parents were such good friends. However, our friendship grew through the years, growing up in Springs and seeing each other at least once a week...braais, weekends, squash, golf, holidays. I almost have no childhood memories without you in it! Almost every memory makes me smile. You were such a unique individual. Your sense of humour, caring attitude and ability to create a warm environment, are just a few things that come to mind. Our last conversation was to share a bottle of bubbles in celebration of my mom and your dad's lives......! Till we meet again....! Lindsay (Bock) Brand

Oh my….such intense sadness…

Dearest, sweetest Daisy

How much you enriched our lives, unknowingly most probably. How I wish I had told you how much you impacted mine. I had the good fortune of holidaying with you twice in your beloved South Africa and from the very moment we met, I knew I was in the company of someone so very special, genuine, kind and sincere.

The laughs started and never stopped. Nicknames were established at our first party…I landed the unfortunate name of Paddy ‘Singh’ because my passport pic resembled that of an Indian female (which you found quite amusing) and far removed from the indigenous New Zealander/Maori that I am! Plus I was quick to add that I did actually like to SING, and so it became Paddy Singh, sealed in stone in every reference from you to me, thereafter.
Dale was quickly converted to Daisy, and before long everything about you shone so much so, that a flowering Daisy on a beautiful Summer’s day was more than fitting for your new moniker and resonated you perfectly. You have always been Daisy to me. Turning to Johantie and keeping with the theme of ‘name-changing’ (with the encouragement of bucket loads of Bubbles), I slipped over the correct pronunciation and inadvertently blurted out ‘Aunty’. It received enough laughter from you that the third nickname in a matter of minutes had been created. Daisy and Aunty...a union of souls and a partnership adored by all of us.

You were always sending beautiful messages on birthdays, New Year, Xmas etc – not once would one of these holidays pass without a thought from you both. Not to mention the adhoc messages of “Missing you”, “sending our love”, “thinking of you”. You were always thinking of others Daisy but going by the many messages and dedications from your devoted and loving friends these past days, it is truly a measure of how much you were loved and of the extraordinary human being you were.

Thank you Daisy, for your friendship, for making my memories of beautiful South Africa so much more meaningful. I am so sad at the thought of never hearing from you or seeing you again as we so often discussed another gathering of the ‘knackers’. But my aching heart is filled with gratitude and thanks for hooking up with you on my own life journey…

May your new journey be one of peace and eternal sunshine dearest Daisy

We did not realize we were making memories, we just knew we were all just having fun.
We used to laugh about the old days and the mischief and the crazy things we did.
But now you are missing and it breaks our hearts so bad.
You will forever live on in all our memories, and this will help us smile again.
Goodbyes are not forever, it simply means until we meet you again.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

SPRINGS GIRLS HIGH – CLASS OF 1983

There is a compilation of posts from our FB group. PLEASE SEE OUR TRIBUTES IN THE PHOTO SECTION.

Our school motto was ‘ESTO PERPETUA’ meaning “let it be perpetual”. Dalie lived up to this motto - she touched so many lives in the most beautiful way, and this will be everlasting!

Dale, you’ll always be in our hearts and thoughts and we’ll always laugh out loud at the shenanigans you brought to every situation.  One of a kind, and the world was a better place because of it.  We'll miss you our friend.  

Darling Dalie...

I met Dalie when I was 18 my first meeting with her made me laugh. I loved her sense of humour and love for life. I have so many memories of our relationship and time together. One of my favourites was my 19th birthday. After clubbing at the Rivera driving in her little mini singing Basia's "Promises" loudly in the car (we have had something to drink beforehand) we had an idea, swimming..We climbed the fence at the Carmel College pool. Dalie jumped in with very little clothing in fact no clothing. She ended up running across the floodlight hockey field with no clothes covered only by a banana leaf. Some prankster had stolen her clothes and run off with them across the field. All she had was a grove of banana trees to work with. It was the best of times and we laughed so hard we were crying. So many memories of laughing, veggie dips, sunning the girls on the beach and lots of dancing and living. I am so privileged to have known you Miss Woods (another long story I will write one day), you made life brighter for all of us and any time spent with you was a treasure. I loved you then and I will always love you until we meet again.
