Rikus

Rikus loved his brothers, he loved his teddies', he loved fishing and he loved when people told him jokes. He was a happy little boy and he touched the lives of everybody he met. Stefan, the farm worker that left the poison on the kitchen table spoke at the funeral. He was crying so he could hardly make himself understood. Stefan is 23 and his mom and dad are close family friends of Natasha and Basson. The Pastor could hardly say a prayer because he was also crying. Michael and Ian, Rikus's brothers sang and Michael spoke to his parents. It was the saddest funeral I've ever been to.

Oh, Belle my heart breaks for all of you looking at this precious little boy. You created a special tribute and treasure about Rikkus and I truly feel his spirt and essence looking through your page. It sounds like Rikkus was a true angel in life and now in heaven. Thank you for sharing his presence and telling us about his stay on earth and his tribute. Thinking of you....

What a wonderful, heart-wrenching page. Such a beautiful boy. We still have all his family (yours included) on our prayer chain. Thanks for sharing your memories and hoping grief shared is a little bit of grief eased.

can't fathom that kind of grief. stephan is way too young, may the Lord heal his broken heart and give him a new life with a new mission, God be with both families. Thank you for posting the LO........may the Lord lift you up too. Grieving is the hardest work, sometimes it is so painful to swallow.

What a wonderful tribute you have created--overflowing with your love and showing his spirit so well. My heart is still grieving for you all, including that poor young man that has to live with this the rest of his life, just as your family does. Still praying that the Lord will give y'all the strength to live with this tragedy.

This is a very beautiful LO and tribute to a beautiful child who is gone too soon. So heartbreaking in every way. I keep all of you, family and friends and the sad farmhand, in my thoughts and prayers every day.
