Arens was Hannah’s ex-boyfriend, and he gave such a moveing speech at her memorial service.
Arens’s speech showed the light side of her youthful life – how she would put on his “flip flops and his jacket” as soon as she was in his room‚ how she loved what she called her “Voortrekker leather shoes”‚ and how she was very unmaterialistic and would ask Arens to put on just a T-shirt and pyjama pants if they were relaxing at home‚ rather than wearing something smart.
He told those gathered‚ “she is who she became” because of her connection with her friends.
