Al-Fatihah for Capt. Usop

Received a call from Dato' J yesterday. It's been a long time since he got in touch. It was a pleasant surprise when I saw his name flashing on my phone. Hmm, maybe a job offer or new business proposal ? Sadly, the news was the opposite.

Capt. Yusof Ahmad passed away in his sleep in the morning and that he will be laid to rest in Ampangan. That's all he could gather and he asks if I know of the specific location. I do not. Innalillah hi wa innalillah hirrajiun. May Allah have mercy on him.

He will be missed, for to me he is one of those who's honesty and no nonsense ways I value and appreciate.
