In loving memory of Guillaume...

GUILLAUME SWANEPOEL
14 JULY 1992 - 30 SEPTEMBER 2008

On 30 September 2008, we lost Guillaume Swanepoel in a motorcycle accident. Guillaume was 16 years old, and one of my son's friends. It broke my heart to see my child and all his friends devastated with grief for their friend, and to see Guillaume's broken parents and two little sisters.

Guillaume, you will be 16 forever, and you will always be alive in our hearts!!

This is the Video I made for Guillaume's funeral, look at this beautiful child and please remember to pray for his family and friends!!

So very sorry for the loss of Guillaume. My daughter lost a dear friend 4 weeks ago in a car and motorcycle accident. I totally understand the broken heart to see a child of yours devastated with grief. I will be so mindful of all that you are going through. My heart aches for all involved.

Take care,

Jan

Why life has to be filled with these devastating tragedies, I'll never understand. You can see the light of brightness in his eyes and the joy on his family's face. For Guillaume's family, your family and all who miss him terrible I pray for comfort.

Your tribute was beautiful.

Oh Karin..that video you made it such an amazing tribute to Guillaume. It touched me deeply. What a handsome handsome young man. I can not even imagine the loss you all must be feeling with the loss of this young life. Keeping you all in my prayers.

Goodness...what a tragedy! I can only imagine what his family & friends must be going through. Brings home the fragility of life doesn't it, & that we should live each day to the full.
My thoughts are with you!

It's so sad to see a young life cut short like this. I, too have a 16 year old son, so this has struck a real chord with me. Your tribute was wonderful. You will all be in my prayers, may God comfort you in your sorrow! xx
