    Our hearts are broken to hear of the loss of your Liam. Nothing we can say would seem enough. Please know that we are keeping you and your children in our prayers and take comfort in the love of family and friends that surround you. May God give you peace and strength.

  15. I never met him personally but I hope the Newman family can move past this sad event, I hope the family can live their lives happily from now on.

  16. Andre en Jenni en julle pragtige kinders, ek is so bly dat ek gisteraand bietjie met julle kon praat. Daar is seker nie ‘n groter seer as om jou kind af te staan nie. Baie van ons moes al en baie van ons het nie die voorreg gehad om te groet nie. Klou vas aan al die mooi memories en weet daar is baie wat vir hom lief was en oor hom gaan treur. Wees sterk Saterdag . We’ll be with you in our thoughts. Ek stuur hierdie boodskappie namens Jeanne in Dubai, Riaan, Jako en veral namens my en oom Louis.

  22. Thinking of you, your family and loved ones.

  23. I am so very sorry for your loss. My heartfelt condolences to your family.

  24. His love for his family, his dogs, and his watches and his kind heart. These are just a few of the things that I think of when I think of Liam. As a teacher, thousands of wonderful young people pass through my life, some of them stand out from the rest – Liam was one of these. I had the great honour to share in his high school life, his growing up, the tears and the joys, the loss of his dear Husky and the addition of the Pitt Bull pup, meeting all of his grad requirements, and proudly crossing the stage. He taught me about MMA and that the cell phone did not mean that the wrist watch would become obsolete (he treasured his watches). There simply are no words to express the depth of my sorrow but I will not dwell there, instead, to honour him, I will remember the best of times that we shared together in TA 8 at THSS. “There are moments that the words don’t reach, There is suffering too terrible to name…the unimaginable.” (Lin Manuel Miranda)

  25. Sharon Pretorius

    Dearest André, Jenni & Family,
    Our sincerest condolences for you as a family.
    Have no words, but can only pray for you.
    God is your refuge, strength and comfort.
    HE shall renew your strength.
    God’s faithful love will meet your deepest needs!
    Much love, peace and strength!

    I am really so very saddened by the news of your loss. I know we lost touch after school but no parent should have to experience what you have. I wish you great strength and comfort over the next months. Sending my love and deepest condolences to you and your family.

  27. Klaus and Maureen Kahle
