It is with a heavy heart that we post this today. Madiba has done more for this country then we will ever realize. Our condolences to his friends and family, our country truly has lost a great man. 

"Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.” ~ Nelson Mandela 1996

There was a guitar, some off-key singing, bubbly and loads of food.
