I have on the sidebar of my blog, the blogsite of Zorro Unmasked. Zorro or Uncle Bernard Khoo passed away on the 4th of April. He died after a courageous and stoic battle against cancer. I received a message from a fellow Blogger named Mat Salo informing me of the sad news.
As a mark of respect, his blogsite shall remain on the sidebar of my blog for a very long time. In my opinion, his family members should not delete his blogsite. It will serve as a reminder to us of his undying cause.
On the masthead of his blog, is emblazoned the caption of his campaign for me to be on DAP CEC. I am eternally grateful for his support. That is an indication of his personal conviction in what I am doing. He does not know that I have not served the required time as a member that qualifies me to stand as a candidate for the CEC. His support will be cherished forever.
I met Zorro personally a few years back. He is a tall dignified man the qualities that failed to be obscured by his way of everyday dressing. We have not met before but he quickly warmed up to me. We gave each other a hug. Thatís how Zorro is. He is immediately trusting as a friend reminding us that the basis of friendship is trust.
He was already a big name in blogosphere and was among the early public spirited individuals who chose to write on the internet. As a result, the world of Malaysian blogosphere got richer.
Zorro has been unstinting and consistent in his social critiques. He is motivated primarily by the cause in pursuit of truth. That cause transcends colour, creed and race. By adopting that universal stance, Zorro has been able to attract many adherents and like-minded individuals to his cause.
I am privileged to be associated with him. Rest in Peace, Uncle Zorro. Adieu and Farewell.
