“Oom Coert wat jou altyd sou groet asof jy pas van die grens af teruggekeer het, so bly was hy om jou te sien, Tannie Elaine wie altyd ‘n glimlag op die gesig gehad het.
“Coert, ons dink aan jou en jou familie, en ons dink met deernis en stunning memories aan jou geliefdes.”
Messages of sadness were also expressed on Elsi’s page, Elle Franco posted, “Dear Elsi, I will miss our conversations, your honest advice, funny jokes and big pretty smile.
