RIP ~ Mike Stenson!
« on: August 29, 2017, 08:55:29 AM »
I don't know if I should laugh or cry,

I doubt that Stennie or myself would ever in our wildest dreams think that we would be typing his name here.....

I am utterly shocked, angry, sad and confused...... as to why my friend, Stennie would do what he has done.....

I am still trying to understand, but no matter how often I play things over in my mind, it will not change a thing....

Stennie, was a moderator on this site from the very beginning, offering a wealth of knowledge to anyone that would listen, often correcting me on Oranjemund history......

Stennie was a good man, a generous guy and even more awesome at flipping meat on the braai....

Gillian, I am really sorry for the loss of your brother and I am battling to write anything that might help....

Stennie, RIP .... I am really gonna miss you......

We will miss Stennie when we are back in Oranjemund spending Christmas with the family. Christmas Day lunch will never be the same as Stennie was part of our extended family and for many years celebrated lunch with us. Mike often popped in to see Jenny and myself, just to have a chat and coffee during the days we were there, never needing an invite.
Mike you will be sorely missed...........

Sorry to hear of Mike Stenson's death!  I never met him, but he came across as a decent member of the Oranjemund online web my Condolences to his loved ones.
