Time & Location
About the Event
TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY, IS TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD!
“I Barbara Nona Mazibuko-Brown was born on 24th May 1953. I was the 5th born child of Agnes and George Brown.”
I worked at a number of companies for a number of years before starting my own businesses. Prior to that, I went to traditional institutions of learning, but none of them taught me what I later learnt in life. Amongst many lessons, life taught me to be RESOURCEFUL that’s how I could provide for my loved ones. Life taught me to be RESOLUTE hence I could make difficult life decisions and in solving complex problems, I learnt to be RESPECTFUL to those who were deserving of my respect. Life also taught me to be RESILIENT to difficulties - I got up as many times as I was knocked down. The best lesson of all, was REPENTENCE from my own error. This, is how in the end, I could RECONCILE life and death in preparation of my final journey, by choosing harmony at the end.
In this way, my beloved, I chose different paths that led me into different people’s hearts. And, I know that because of the special relationships that I had with each one, you will each trace my footprints in your hearts. I walked my long life journey with you my confidants, friends, family and beloved children. But this final journey to the other side, I was meant to walk alone. Though I walk it alone, I am not lonely – your beautiful thoughts, prayers, memories and faces will keep me company until I reach all my loved ones who have gone before me. God has always had a plan – for me, THIS IS IT… This is HIS plan for life on earth and in the hereafter!
To you my beloved friends, family - my sister Pinky. my son (Vuvu), daughters (Lovey and Vuyiswa), my bonus son (Patty), my nieces, nephews, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren…
As sudden as my death was, I am at peace.
My pain was overwhelming and unbearable.
When you remember me, please do not weep
My body wasn’t really mine nor yours to keep.
And so, it will no longer be there, it has chosen to sleep.
Goodbye, Goodnight, So long!!!
