    Everyone in the AH community!

    It saddens me greatly to inform you that PH Pieter Erasmus, father, friend, outfitter and former sponsor here on AH has passed away.
    Pieter is survived by his sister, a young daughter and a son.

    So sad for his beautiful children! RIP
    Cancer is a brutal disease! Sorry his family had to see him be attacked by it.

    It deeply saddens me to hear of this news. I had seen his Facebook page recently were he said to would probably be his last post. I never hunted with him but always appreciated his kind remarks whenever I posted something here or on face book. I HATE fking CANCER! My deepest condolences to his family

    Terribly sad news.

    God bless all who knew and loved Pieter.

    I had only met him a few times, yet mourning at this news. I know he will be greatly missed.
