This is my beautiful grandmother on her wedding day.
She said goodbye to us when I was only 8 years old, but Ouma Kloppie still remains one of the most influential people in my life. In my early 20's I am now starting to see the great effect she has on me. Her triumphs came from failures, and through this she became strong.
She pioneered many things in our family and her values, creativity and love for music have been passed down, shared and enjoyed between all of us .
With her unassuming grace she softly touched people's lives in ways that can change the world.
I hope one day someone can say the same about me.
