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,” he wrote in the post.
