Rufus came to visit me on 31st March 2005 - and what a pleasure it was to have him stay with me. He kept me safe and I kept him safe. Now he can keep you safe. He is an amazing friend. Rufus is my pal. I took Rufus on a diabetic holiday to Albert Falls Lake. It was a camp for diabetic children. We had the best time - canoe rides, walks, braai's, dark star-filled nights. I will miss Rufus, but I know Rufus has a job to do, to bring joy, care and love to all the diabetic children in the world. Bye my pal.
