On the 30th of July 2021, South Africans were left shattered and distraught by the news of the actor who was labeled an icon in the acting industry.
Since his passing, the family is yet to move on as he was a great influence; taking to social media on Saturday, a few of them expressed how much they miss him, especially his physical presence.
Shona’s wife, Actress Connie said, “1 year without your physical presence today and God continues to walk with us as we navigate our new reality. We miss you so much my LOVE but it is well. We are okay. You continue resting. You live on in our hearts and minds. MEMORIES ARE FOREVER AND ARE A TREASURE. Love you for eternity.”
Lesedi also shared a photo of the late star and wrote, “This day felt so surreal. The energy was heavy and weird. Today I’m feeling it slightly but not as much… at least I’m trying not to feel it as much… mourning you is a never ending journey. To be honest, for me mentally, most of the year went by in a blur. It’s really not the same without you. I said it a year ago and I’ll say it again – thank you for everything. I love you. I miss you.”
Shona and Connie’s daughter, Alicia also wrote to him, “Today marks 1 year without you, but it still feels like yesterday. Words can not describe how much I love and miss you, but I hope I’m making you proud.”
Followers and celebrities jumped into the comment to empathise with the family.
