Actress Datin Marlia Musa recently stated that she and her husband Datuk
M.Nasir are still grieving over the loss of the latter’s father Mohamed Sam,
who passed away Thursday (28 Jan).

The actress, who shared the sad news
on social media yesterday, stated that the most frustrating of all was the
fact that they could not return to Singapore to bid their last farewell and
attend the funeral in Singapore due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

tried our best to get the approval to travel to Singapore, but the authority
had said no due to the pandemic. My husband has already accepted the
situation,” she said.

Marlia admitted that it had been a year since the
family had the opportunity to visit Sam, and were only able to communicate
with him prior through phone and video calls.

Mohamed Sam’s funeral will
be arranged by M Nasir’s other siblings, all eight of them currently residing
in Singapore.

Suci’s dedication to her grandfather

The couple’s daughter Suci has also
dedicated a post about the loss on Instagram, writing, “Today I lost my
grandfather. The only one I knew since I was born. Growing up living 350km
apart was always kinda hard. Of course when I was a kid, I didnt know it yet.
looking back, I was so awkward and shy around elders. Especially if I’m not
always around them. So a lot of his prime time I wasnt able to talk to him
properly. Instead, exchanging vague conversations.”

“I never thought this
day would come. genuinely I thought he was gonna live forever. He gave me
great advice though… and he gave the best hugs, forgetting how strong he
actually was, he’d hug you and pat you so hard on the back. I’ll miss those
hugs. I’m so utterly grateful for the times I got to spend with you. Even if
most of the time we spent it in silence. I love u forever. Words will never be
able to express how much I’ll miss u.”
