Richard Hunter Christie (Dick) whose finest memorial must surely be his work The Law of Contract in South Africa, died in Cape Town on the 9th of February 2010 as he approached his eighty-sixth birthday. R W M Dias (Mickey), the distinguished author of Jurisprudence and a prolific writer on Torts, died in late 2009 at the age of eighty-eight. There seems something strangely appropriate in their deaths occurring within so short a time of each other, for they had been lifelong friends and had suffered together the tragedy of their wives dying in the same small plane crash in Zimbabwe in late 1980. There were other very strong ties between them to which will be alluded below.
