NAME: Gerrit van der Linde
MESSAGE: In memory of Andre Chandler, I would like to share a fond story of him. 1995 Wild Coast Sun SA. Andre just bought a brand new Mazda 4X4 and had to try it out on the beach with a bit of fishing. The tide came in and Andre and some friends got caught on the wrong side of Tompsons lagoon. While trying to cross the 4X4 got stuck in the middle of the lagoon. He then called for Security assistance and by the time we arrived only the roof of his 4X4 was visible above the waves which was rolling in the one window and out the other. Needless to say, the 4X4 was ruined before it was even properly 2 days old, and sold even faster.... :-). My thoughts goes out to all his friends and family. I will always remember him and the night at Tompsons lagoon.
