In Loving Memory Othusitse ” Daddy” Jacob Mmitsi

5 JULY 1986- 17 OCTOBER 2012


It would be a great injustice if I didn’t dedicate this post to your memory. Though it’s more than a month since your passing, I figure better late than never. When I created my blog I wanted to put all my treasures in it. Wa itse mos gore writing diary entries was sort of getting outdated…well, (smiles) perhaps not. What do guys know about diaries, anyway? So I’ve poured my thoughts into it for some time. How come grief takes away all the words that could be said? How could we possibly reconcile with the finality of death, that we can’t make a bargain?

Today, all we have left are the memories; to cherish and treasure. How can one forget the time you started feeling grown up and decided that you didn’t like being called “daddy” anymore? Laughs. Well, tough, because the name went nowhere… 🙂 I wish I had more words to say, yet the recollection that you are no more stops me every time. Perhaps silence is best? Perhaps it is but a reminder that there will never be enough words or comfort for those that shared a part of you. You were silenced at such a young age and my heart continues to bleed for your little one, the apple of your eye and your family.

Thank you for sharing those moments; the endless laughter and pranks. There will never be another.

You will always remain in our hearts, Rest in Peace “Jay Air Force”.

You Were Always On My Mind…

Fantasia Barrino:

Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have

If I made you feel second best
I’m so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you
All the lonely lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that your mine
Little things I should’ve said and done
I just never took the time
Oh yeah Oh yes

You were always on my mind
(You were always on my mind)
You were always on my mind
(You were always on my mind)…
