R.I.P. Captain Sir .... We'll Miss You !

I was shocked to read this message just now, on FB from Tony:

"Tony Yew salutes the ole sea dog Capt Ancient Mariner. Bon Voyage mon ami. May he rest in peace. We will all miss him on MRT"
I requested verification ...... and the reply was:

"Tony Yew
CD, yes, sadly allaryaham Capt Yusof a.k.a Ancient Mariner passed away in the morning of the 19th of July. He was laid to rest presumably in Linggi, his hometown. May he rest in peace."

His main concern despite taking up on other matters, was the issue of PKFZ - it was what prompted him to start blogging. He also mentioned as much when I met him a couple of times.
A real jolly good man he was - and spoke like a real sailor.
The high seas will miss him.
I'll miss him and his blog .....

May God Bless his soul.
Rest in Peace, Captain, Sir.
His last post was on the death of his Mother:

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 2dary to 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.
