Behind every man who strives to be great, there’s already a woman who is great. Mine goes by the name of Heidi Hoy, now Heidi Marais – the most free spirited woman I know. Come to think of it, the only woman I know.

We’ve been together for 27 years this year. Together we’ve seen it all. Bought all the T-shirts, in all different sizes. We’ve been through thicker and thinner. Had our ups and our…
