My dearest Tsala, this has to be by far the saddest day in my life. I have no words yet lotsa mixed emotions. We laughed we fought we cried we partied hard. Can't stop the tears because I didn't realize that the end in the physical was near. If I knew when we spoke last week that it was the last time, I would've told you THANK YOU. You are generous talented and have a great sense of humour. Motho wa batho. You are unique, there will be #ripikomash none like you. Thank you for loving me and telling me off when I needed it. Thank you for allowing me to lean on you when I needed it but most importantly for you trusting me to be there for you when you needed it. Something I know us as your friends knew was hard for you, and we appreciated it because we know that you didn't like to be a 'burden' even though you never were one. Rest in Power Gogo and find the peace that eluded you at times in life. I love you my friend, Goodnight A post shared by Andile Gaelesiwe (@andile1) on
