Louis, all of us at WCA Workers Compensation Assistance will miss you. I’m sure many, many more people outside our company will join us in saluting the enormous contribution you made to workers’ compensation in South Africa. And I would like to thank you on behalf of many thousands of employers and employees – people who have no idea that their lives were made a little easier, a little fairer, because of your passion for the work you did every day. Our condolences go out to your family and friends. May you rest in peace. Brian Pivo, Managing Member
