Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela 1918 - 2013
Hamba kahle, Tata (translation: go well / stay well,father)
May your earthly body now have it's well deserved rest, your spiritual body fly to join your loved ones who went before, and may your legacy inspire all those you left behind. Our deepest sympathies and very heartfelt condolences are with your wife, Graça, and the entire Mandela Family and friends at this time of their loss.
Thank you, Madiba - for the incredible inspiration you have provided to so very many people, for your capacity to love, and to be loved, for your leadership, and for your amazing ability to forgive.
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela (quote source: http://www.nelsonmandela.org/)
I am humbled to have lived in your time.
