Hasnah Haron

It grieves me to share the sad news that Hasnah Haron passed away today, after a long battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed... She was a very strong woman, and had been fighting the illness for a long time. It seems that she spent her last days with her family, with loving care of her daughter and other family members. I often think back to last summer when I was lucky enough to meet her and have lunch with her at her home in the company of M Fadzil, A Halim, and Hasnah's wonderful family. She made an impression on me with her kindness, wisdom, and generosity that I will remember always.
Her music will live on..
