It is with deep sadness for me to inform you on the passing of the Ancient Mariner. Our father, Capt. Muhammad Yusof b. Haji Ahmad, passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday on July 19. He was laid to rest next to his dear mother (and our grandmother) in Linggi yesterday afternoon.
We have read all the postings and condolences conveyed by many in the various blog sites. We extend our most deep gratitude to the many blogger friends who had posted the news earlier. Thank you Rocky Bru, Syed Akbar Ali, Haris Ibrahim, Tok Mommy, Pak Ngah Bakaq, Pasquale, Little Brother Amir Hamizi and A Voice.
Our father took to blogging like fish to water. Even we, were pleasantly surprised of his witty and yet eloquent writing skills. He was an intensely passionate man who loved his family and friends, the sea, Bossa Nova and Keroncong.
He will be deeply missed.
We will be holding tahlil prayers after Maghrib tonight, July 20 (today) and July 23 (Thursday night) at Surau An Nai'mah, near our home.
Once again, thank you for reading our father's blog.
On behalf of our family,
Nurasyikin bt. Muhammad Yusof (eldest daughter)
