Highly cautious, he will always maintain strict adherence to all medical counsels from the appropriate quarters, as it concerns the prevention of this COVID-19 scourge.

“He would be sorely missed. He was such a fine breed, whose impact will ever remain a point of reference.”

“We have been battling it for a while now before his sudden demise. It is so sad we eventually lost him.
