"We Love You, Mr. Roo": Rudolph du Toit Memorial
Organized by: Neville Kiser
Rudolph du Toit was born on August 30, 1984 and died suddenly on May 27, 2014.
"We love you, Mr. Roo."
We all thought it when we heard the tragic news of Rudolph's sudden death just over a week ago. As a close friend of Michael Colton, Rudolph's long-time partner, like everyone I was shocked and heartbroken. Right away, I asked Michael, "What do you need? Help with flight costs to go to South Africa? What? Tell me! You can't get through this alone!" Of course, Mike said he was fine and that he already purchased a flight to attend the funeral. But then a few days later he informed me that Rudolph's parents may need help in paying the massive funeral costs they're incurring.
And so, I wanted to setup this memorial for Michael and Rudolph's immediate family to let them know just how much we all loved Rudolph, and how much we will miss him. All the money raised will go directly to Rudolph's father and stepmom, Chris and Marieta du Toit and mom and stepdad, Janette and Vettie Bekker, and sisters Elana Smith and Marejuzhka Gonsalves, and his long-time partner, Michael Colton (who is currently there in SA with the family).
So wherever you live -- South Africa, America, the UK, it doesn't matter -- show your love for Mr. Roo and make a donation today. No gift is too small. On behalf of Rudolph's family and friends, we can't thank you enough for your generosity in this time of need.
