Cheers Bill!

Gooi -ing movie after tv series after stage play after cd, Bill Flynn is as a part of South African culture as Mrs Balls chutney. It's weird to think he is no longer with us, but he has left as with all sorts of sounds and images to remember him by.

There have been and will continue to be many tributes made to Bill, and I don't feel that I am sufficiently qualified to add anything. I did like the following comment posted by Riaan Coetzee under the InsideIol blog post 'Bill Flynn dies' :
  • "Bill, you made us laugh. You made us cry. and at times, made us have a good long look and laugh at us as afrikaaners. i would like to dedicate one song to you: Frank Sinatra…. i did it my way. And i’m sure you would have said “i did it sideways” via con dios"
Cheers Bill.
