Al Fatihah

I lost my dear mother Hjh Latifah bt Hj Md Hussain, at about 3.30 a.m. yesterday. She has been on a life support system at the Seremban GH for the past week and doctors have listed the cause of demise as Type II respiratory failure 2° severe community acquired pneumonia.

We laid her to rest in the afternoon after zohor prayers, near my father's grave at our kampung in Linggi, Negeri Sembilan. She had outlived him by about nine years.

Many kith and kin came from near and far for the funeral, including my blogger buddies Nuraina Samad and Ahirudin Attan a.k.a. Rocky's Bru. We thank them most copiously, also to those who sent condolences and salam takziah. Due to the very short time frame we had for making funeral arrangements, I must have missed informing many. To them, my very sincere apologies.

Al fatihah.

  13. Dear Captain

    Our deepest condolences on the passing of your mum. As in the biggest scheme of things, I have held a strong belief too that we should, at the same time, celebrate her life, the gift of her presence with us in all those long years she had, and the sweet memories and legacy she left behind for her next generation .

    In cricket parlance, we should celebrate the great innings achieved by your mum, as life must go on.

    Al-fatihah

  26. The Family of Captain Yusof., with sadness I received the very late morning news while I am away from Klang. Your going is a terrible loss to the nation especially to the our fellow Bumi Community. A man who preferred truth to personal glory, a man who stood for ALL Malaysians as a colleague. All your ex-colleagues of LPK will miss you. Goog-bye.

    It came as a shock to us all in our family. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

    The family appreciates very much if the readers who knew him personally would spread the sad news to all whom we may not even know how to notify.

    Kind regards to all,
