This comment was left on my blog post named "Newspaper clips from 1982", it was written by my brother, D.R v d Westhuizen Jnr.

He passed away on January 2 2010. A massive heart attack took him away from us at the tender age of 47. May he have peace and harmony where he find himself today. We all love you Broer.

Hi Riana,

Just wanted to send you these for your blog, and your own memories. We unveiled the memorial today on the 12th of June at the National Museum of Military History in Johannesburg. And it was a very moving occasion, I remembered you when I read those names, and I know you would have liked to have been there.

best wishes
