Our hearts reach out to the families and friends of Joy Baber and Brett Cathrall who lost their lives in a road accident on 13 August.

Joy was a true joy to know – upbeat, committed, caring, selfless and efficient at whatever she was involved in, certainly including the Waterberg Welfare Society where she was a most effective Project Manager for more than four years.

Nine-year old Brett, the son of Grant and Louise Cathrall and grandson of Joan Baber's sister Protea, was a student at Bellavista School in Johannesburg.

Joan Baber and Mary Stephenson are recovering from their injuries.

The impact on the Baber and Cathrall families and the Waterberg community cannot adequately be expressed. We offer our most heartfelt condolences to all who loved Joy and Brett
