I was never a fan of the ANC but always a fan of Madiba! He stood a strong, tall man with love for his country. There will never be another like he was! I'm so sad and never thought it would affect me this way, I cannot stop watching the tributes :(. He died on my sons crown birthday, a memory that will last for the rest of my life.
