Go well dear friend

Internationally known South African conservationist, author, humanitarian and founder of The Earth Organization, Lawrence Anthony passed away on March 2. He was 61.

Lawrence was a good friend and I truly enjoyed his company. He made me laugh with his stories of wild adventures in Iraq while saving the animals of the Baghdad Zoo [VIDEO] and told the best stories of gorillas and Pygmys in the wilderness of Africa.

Here’s a story [ARTICLE] about how “The Elephant Whisperer” was mourned by his elephant friends.

In Zulu the phrase is “Hamba kahle” and is used when greeting someone on their departure. Instead of saying “Goodbye” it means “Go well”. I will miss him. Go well my friend.
