Originally on Facebook, from Mabra Sivuyile, who I mentored and took on board as an apprentice (unedited):-
"If we could all be like this guy David Lipschitz, I think world would be a nice or better place to live in. The love he got for people got no boundries. He is a heavenly sent mentor, friend and father figure to me. I have learned a lot through the time I have spent with this guy, he thought me a lot of things in generally and about the values of life. He is the one who help me find the purpose of what I am here to do in this world. There are no words that can describe the kindness& love this guy have for each person he come across to.
"I remember this one time we where travelling to Westlake, when we where in the garage to fill the petrol, he tiped the garage attendant with R50 and I was like wow really, and he said "You know what Sivuyile, you must appreciate what ever little thing the person has done for you, and he must know that you appreciate what he had done for you".
"I wish everyone in this world can see things the way he sees them.
I can't count the things he had done for me and my family, he loved us as if we are his family. We are very greatful David for what you have done for me and my mom, theres'nt more we could ask for. Your words inspired me, you thought me to love and be grateful."
