    Dit is tragies! Medelye aan sy gesin en aan Remgro, veral ook Johann vanwee Thys se regterhandskap aan Johann! Mag die reg geskied, want die man se familie is onmiddelik in 'n gat gedompel van hartseer en verdriet. Mag Hy julle in Sy hande dra en vertroos en die pyn en leiding ontneem!

    It's not sad Koos it's a fact of life, Smart people will usually make a greater contribution thus earn more money, excepting sport stars, entertainers, Hollyweird and athletes. And peons will remain people of zero consequence.
