Joost- I will remember you in my prayers

I enjoyed the programme on Carte Blanche. What an open and truthful interview between Joost and Derek Watts.  

My heart broke for Joost who was the pride of South African rugby fans and loved by all. When his mistakes were publicized he was the bad boy. His past was not forgotten and he was persecuted by all.      

My precious son Andre died a sudden death at the age of 36. There was no time to sort things out and say goodbyes. So, Joost continue with your positive attitude and the good work you are doing for other sufferers like you.  Insist on seeing your children more often.  They need to be with you to understand what you are living with so that when your times comes their lives will not be shattered.   

I will remember you in my prayers.
