“You were a Spartan & a Roman all rolled into one in every sense of the word. A great son of the West who inspired millions, who made us proud of who we are & what we stand for, who humbled our collective adversaries and who harboured no fear.

“Your legacy is truly blessed & wrapped in glory and it shall surely endure. Be rest assured that those of us that you have left behind shall pick up the gauntlet, receive the .baton, fly the flag and continue the great fight. And as we enter each new battle we shall call your name in awe and remember you.

“May your star shine brightly amongst the hosts of Heaven until we meet again at the marriage feast of the Lamb and may the Lord comfort and strengthen your wife, children & loved ones at this difficult time.
