Mr and Mrs Kuki, My deepest sympathies to you on the passing of Mrs Kukis Father.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Geela , Kuki and the boys: Gary and I would like to express our deepest sympathy. No matter how old we get, it is still difficult to lose our parents. Our prayers are with you. It sounds like you will have wonderful memories of your father, Geela.

I am thinking of you and your family, and especially, your wife. It's very traumatic when a gal loses her dad.I'm sure you'll be a great comfort for her. You have given support to many of us here, we'll give it back as you need it. Take care. Lynne
Jose and I send our most sincere sympathies to both you and Geela and to your entire family. Your father in law sounds like a remarkable man who has left a wonderful legacy. I hope you will be able to celebrate his life as you mourn.
Mr. and Mrs. Kuki:
As a regular lurker and most infrequent poster I have received much valuable information about cruising and a great deal of light hearted entertainment.
I would like to extend my sympathies to you and your family as to the loss of Mrs. Kuki's father. What an awesome live and legacy. You have been blessed.
May God be with you until you meet again.
There has been a lot of sadness and illness in our Cruisemate family of late. Geela's Dad's passing is the latest, and it just maks you realize how fragile life is..My prayers to Kuki & Geela, and the boys,please know you are in my heart.

A heartfelt thanks to all our friends at CruiseMates!!! You really can't find warmer and nicer friends anywhere.
I posted about my FIL in the "Good Morning" thread, but have clipped and pasted it here, for cruisemates who may have missed it there, just so they get a glimpse of who this man was.
His funeral will be tomorrow.
I'm afraid Mrs. Kuki's father has passed away tonight. Of course no one here knows him, but he was quite an individual.
At various times in his life he lived in Paris, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Australia, Israel, and Canada. He spent most of his adult years teaching students, and ended his scholastic career as a school principal. My father in law was also a prolific painter, and his works can be found all over the world.
As well as being a teacher, he was a scholar. He wrote treatises and texts on history, ethics, and philosophy. His books are in major research libraries in Canada, the US and Israel.
Teacher, artist, scholar, author, storyteller, husband, father, and grandfather, he invested himself in his family, colleagues and students and his legacy lives on as they contribute to their communities, their countries and future generations.
Geela and Mo, please accept our most heartfelt condolences of your loss of your father. While I believe he is still with you in spirit is always very hard for those that are left behind to miss them. We still miss my parents every day but hold fast with the belief that they are happy in wherever we believe them to be. Again, so sorry for your loss.

Please know that I too join in with all the other Cruisemates to offer my sincere sympathies. What a remarkable, man - I'm sure the many memories you have of him will carry you through the difficult days. My prayers are with you all.
Kuki and Geela, our heartfelt sympathies go out to you both. My own loss is still fresh in my mind, and I know what a hard time you both must be going through. Treasure the photos and the memories; he sounds like he was a truly remarkable man!
