Our family is naturally very saddened and heart-broken by the news, but when somebody becomes nearly a century old then this is something to be expected. A normal cycle of life, the memories remain close to my heart and my father's legacy lives on in his children and grandchildren. May his soul rest in peace and I would like to take this occasion to thank you all for the messages of condolence and words of comfort that you have sent me through different channels"
