- Melusi revealed that he wanted to make his parents happy while they were still alive
- Social media users showered him with praise for being such a good son to his folks
Melusi Sitshaluza took to the #ImStaying group on Facebook to share an inspirational story with Mzansi. He revealed that he had bought his elderly parents cellphones so they could communicate.
He said they were very happy. He went on to explain that he hated it when people would spend a lot of money on their parents' funerals but nothing on them while they were alive.
"My father is 68 years old and my mother is 62 years old, my aim is to make them happy while they are still alive. I hate it when people arrange an expensive funeral when their parents are gone while they didn't enjoy their life when they were alive I bought two Samsung A2 Cores for both my parents so they can chat on WhatsApp, they were very very happy."
Facebook users loved the post and showered Melusi with praise for his kind gesture:
"That is great. I give flowers and care while they are alive."
Suzanne Glyn Topzand:
"You are making great memories, unlike so many others. Heartwarming!!"
Sthembiso Khumalo Chiwandire:
"Parents are the best. Well done and thank you for the advice. Very profound."
"Well done Melusi. Give to them whilst they are alive. Love them whilst they still here. So later when they are gone you have no regrets because they knew how much they were loved by you!"

What made the post by Dimpho M Sono with the Twitter handle @singishameless extra interesting was that her dad's special and very unusual birthday present was actually four brand new car tyres.
