A light in our midst is extinguished today.
A luminary in the struggle for justice.
a man of wisdom, patience, enthusiasm , humour and wit.
A great heart.
Generous with his time,
We mourn the loss of such a man;
Whose commitment transcends the creed
of individualism and greed.
Whose life is a monument to engagement in his cause:
A challenge to the status quo.
We mourn the loss of such a visionary.
Our Mentor, Professor, Inspiration and Friend.
You have given substance to our thoughts,
Strength to our activism,
Passion to our cause.
Your ideals and example stand forever as beacons of light in our minds.
They give us hope and courage to continue the struggle you pursued with such conviction.
You have changed our lives and your spirit remains forever a part of us.
