It was nice to hear from Ann again, although not in the best of circumstances.

She contacted me to inform me of the passing of her father. One of the pioneering folk from the early days of Oranjemund.

I quote from her email.

The reason for me contacting you on this occasion is to ask if you could list my dad under "Lost Diamonds" as he sadly passed away last week at the age of 97.

You might (or might not!) recall that our family moved to OM in the early 50's and left in the late 60's.  There is no doubt time spent in Oranjemund was the happiest time of his life.  He loved the town, his work, the sport, social life and the many, many friends he made.  When he acquired a laptop for a short time, the only website he ever looked at was yours!  Unbeknownst to us, he meticulously preserved his Oranjemund Recreation Club (ORC) badge denoting his membership of the badminton and soccer section.  He was a very good badminton player.  When we found it tucked in his drawer, we knew he would be pleased if it went with him.
