"...flanked by my two oldest friends and comrades, Walter and Oliver...
— Long Walk To Freedom"

Out of His infinite Kindness and Love, God blessed you with two lifelong friends, fellow freedom-fighters and oneness-brothers: Walter Sisulu and Oliver Tambo.

Walter was an unfailing source of strength and love by your side in prison. To Oliver, in profound silence you sent your inmost thoughts and feelings. He, in turn, became your outer voice, here, there and everywhere.

Nelson, Oliver and Walter — "Free South Africa NOW" was the secret message of your names.

Walter, Oliver and Nelson — "South Africa's freedom WON" is God's open Message to humanity.
