Family friend, Ann Pretorius: "Simba was a champion"
Family friend Ann Pretorius commends Simba's parents for raising a champion.
Ann watched Simba grow as a child, at Jam International, which is a missionary that assists families and children from Africa.
Ann recalls how Simba arrived on his mom's hip as two-year-old toddler.
"Simba was raised in an environment of diverse cultures. He was so bold and courageous," she said.
Ann added that Simba touched so many lives across the world. "Simba gave his all in everything he did. He always wanted to be a champion. To be the biggest, strongest and he truly was, " she added.
Ann struggled to hold back emotions.
"Let's celebrate this incredible life even though we've been weeping so many nights," she concluded.
