My father served in the SAPS since 1991. For all my life, I've known him as a proud South African man who served his country with pride! It was such an honor being raised by him! Unfortunately he recently passed, but the mark he left is forever. He is a hero, both personally and professionally. A single father, who juggled the stresses of being a policeman so well.
He was a pillar in the community,even when he was off duty, people would come to our house to ask for help- I don't remember a day when he ever turned anyone away. He was always willing to serve, no matter how tired he was.
I wish I could have more time just to appreciate him and award him for dedicating his whole life to everyone else.
Thank you daddy.
He will always be a hero to many!
