    I know him very well he is a very serious type but I never thought he likes sport to this extent. I wish someone can just whisper a good news to his hearing perhaps he might wake up from the dead.
    RIP Prof Michael Filani

    As it was reported that he was not sick before the occurence it can happen to anybody it is called ‘SADS’ Sudden Arthymmia Death Syndrome. My prayer to the entire family is that God will grant you the fortitude to bear the loss. My sincere prayer to the wife (my lecturer in Nursing Reseach in1986) is that God will continue to protect you read Psalm 46 verse 1,Exodus 14 verse 14. God bless you Ma.
