Our family was devastated last week when Oshean's brother, at the age of 39, passed away after suffering a massive heart attack.

The last couple days have been so difficult.
Especially since we're so far away.
And our hearts ache.

Oshean is flying to South Africa at the moment and will be there on Tuesday morning.
The kids and I are here.
It was too little time to co-ordinate all 6 of us leaving on short notice.
So, we sit here, while our hearts are with our family in South Africa.

Rest in peace Deen...
You will never know how much you will be missed.

Lacintha and family, my sympathies go to you all. How hard to be so far from loved ones and not be able to be together during this loss.

PS. I had no idea you were from South Africa. I spent 4 months in Cape Town about 10 years ago completing my degree.
