    Whilst I am not a Sharks fan, on Saturday my family and I will be supporting the Sharks in memory of my nephew Gregory who died on 14th October 2012 at the age of 23 from a heart attack. He was an absolutely devoted fan and his Mom Lynda is also a sharks fan so it will be fitting tribute to her and Gregory for the Sharks to win). Rest in peace Gregory. We love and miss you and I know that the Angels will be shouting for the Sharks to win. Love Aunty Jill xxxx

      My condolences for your family's loss, Jill.

      Thank you very much Clive. We are all devastated at his loss. He was a fantastic Chef (worked at a guest house in Houghton) and had so many plans for the future. When I couldn't wake him up on Sunday morning, my soul was ripped out of me and I still cannot come to terms with the tragedy. My sister is feeling it as well because it was her youngest child. I was a spiritual person up until then but now am very angry and cannot understand why. Again, thank you for your condolences. Even though I don't know you, the fact that a stranger took the time to do that is so appreciative. I will tell my sister as well. Jill

      yaaawnnn ... is dit al ? op elke argument is dit al comeback ? jy weet n comeback kan net soveel gebruik word ? okay , kom ons gebruik die geskiedenis om die argument mee te sluit. wat het gebeur tussen 81 en 85 ? WP het 5 jaar in n ry gewen , nog geen ander span kon dit ooit doen nie. dis mos in die verlede soos die 11 jaar , so dis nog valid vir huidige argumente ?

      blou joppie, jy sal jou eentonige ou deuntjou nou moet verander, ne, jou arme pateet. En vir jou, leonard.bulle, wie gee om wie vir die "chokers" kans gee? Hulle doen hulle praatwerk tussen die vier lyne. Jou armsalige spannetjie het voor die TV gesit en kyk hoe mens dit doen.
