Well done

Ismail Patelia, Lotus River

Regarding Chantal van Aarde, to preserve life is the highest form of living a blessed life. Chantal’s breath of hope for 35 years is a great blessing for her parents and all those who so lovingly comfort, care and embrace her through those many years of courage and hope (“Chantal celebrates 35 years with family”, Southern Mail, May 4).

These are cheerful, patient, loving and dedicated moments in time. They are memorable times for the parents, siblings, family and friends. Thanks to management and dedicated staff of Southen Mail. It is truly a community paper which holds the heartbeat of the affairs of the community in their receptive hearts. Thanks to your reporter Roshan Abrahams for her style in capturing the hearts of the people.
