I LOVE YOU From the moment I met you I have learnt from you. Even on your last day with us you still continue to teach me Bra B. The many losses we are suffering are too much to really tap into and deal with and as @SoilSista and I were talking last night we both acknowledged that and realized that we need to start being grateful and try to stop wallowing in the sorrow. We need to allow Mother Nature to take her course and be thankful for it. So here goes Bra B❤️ Thank you for loving me HARD. Thank you for deeming me worthy of your time and sharing your gifts of radio and television with me Thank you for wanting me to be the best that I can be and for saying ‘I will make sure you become one of the greatest voices in radio period. Always saying there will be NO ‘Best Female in radio’ when they speak of you. It will simply be ‘One of the best to ever do it.’ Thank you for loving our family hard. UTata wabantwana bam and I have enjoyed your counsel through out the years and advice and we will cherish that. There are too many milestones to mention and one will spend a lifetime reminiscing over them. But one that I cherish the most is saying goodbye to your father with you and spending the whole day with you and family eAtridgeville after the send off and you introducing us to all your childhood friends with proud Segale Mogotsi by your side. How happy is that guy going to be to welcome you in heaven and Bra Hugh becuase THEY loved you. I will miss your advice or sometimes instructions that ALWAYS began with ‘Do yourself a favour’ and always ended with ‘Please do that for me my dear!’ And when I’d call you out on that you’d say ‘Okay do it for the both of us’ Blessed are we to have walked this earth in your lifetime. Blessed am I to have learnt SO MUCH from you. Tell them I miss them. Lebo, Sis Brenda, Mam Busi, Mam Mirriam, Bra Hugh, Segale, TK, Prokid, Jabba, Monde, Iggy, Khabzela, Bhut Jabu Khanyile. Intliziyo yam ibuhlungu. Today we shall HONOUR you MY HERO❤️??? PS I specifically chose these pics coz YOU were interviewing ME The Jammer and people MUST KNOW?❤️???
