Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name; you are mine
When you pass through the waters I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you;
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
And the flame shall not consume you.
You are precious in my eyes, and honoured,
And I love you.
You were stylish cultured and powerful
Your elegance and beauty attracted all and sundry to you more than bees to honey
You were fearless, all conquering and freely expressed your opinion at all times because you always believed in the freedom of speaking your mind
No wonder you were revered for your courageousness, gallantry, nerve and guts
Alas, we will remember you as the gentle and gorgeous warrior, full of bravery, fortitude and courage.
Your battles of the mind were many and fierce, but your glory and triumphs were in winning them with zeal and resilience.
But all too soon, you are gone and our hearts bleed deeply with pain and sorrow for your loss
Nevertheless, we are honoured that you shared those magical moments with us. Thank you for encouraging us to stand up and be counted in what we believe in.
We will continue that legacy you left behind and uphold them firmly as a tribute to all that you were and stood for!
Good bye ABLADZI our beloved Friend, you are gone but not forgotten
As the verse says …He has called you to become His, so REST IN PERFECT PEACE!
