September 17, 2010

Ntate Lebohang Patrick Koto has died. He was a wonderful teacher and an even more wonderful friend. Memories of his smile, his voice, his love of music will be in my heart always. May his soul rest in peace, and may his dear wife and two young children find comfort in knowing that he is no longer in pain. May we all find happiness in his memory.

Here Ntate Koto is perfecting the decorations we drew on the chalkboard for his birthday; he was actually quite a good artist.

Here he's blowing out the candle on his birthday cake that I made for him...there are no birthday candles so I used one of my night lights!

This was at one of our sporting events; he was so proud that Reneking won that he held the winner and brought her all the way back to us.

Here he is cheering with the Renekeng kids.

One of my favorite, though not a very good, picture. It was a day that the taxi didn't come for us and we all trudged home...almost a two hour walk in the afternoon...after teaching all day...but we sang and talked with the animals all the way home.
