Simoné :: Class of 2012
Looking at this, I feel very old…I remember the day when I was still just a ‘laaitie’ and my oldest brother and his wife Alda announced they’re expecting a daughter…that little baby girl is now all grown up and in her last year of school (unless she slacks on the studies, which she’d better not!!).
Simoné, I don’t feel old enough to be your uncle, nor do I see myself like that – you know how much I dislike it if you call me “oom”, haha!!
What I do feel however is pride, to have been a part of your life, sometime less often than I would’ve liked but nonetheless still a part; to know you and to know that we’re family; to know that through all the hardships, difficult times and sometimes financial hardships your parents had to endure, they still managed to raise you with the right moral values, but most importantly they loved you unconditionally. That same love shines through in the way you care about others.
I know you love your photos of your Matric Farewell and I am proud to have been able to capture these memories for you.
