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.
