This is just in from NST SMS alert -
27/03 Veteran newsman Zainon Ahmad or Pak Non, 70, died of liver cancer at Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II, Kota Baru, Kelantan this afternoon.
I'm not a close associate of arwah Pak Non, but he played an important role in giving me a chance to a better life many years ago.
I will always be thankful for what he did for me.
I will also always remember him as a kind and gentle person.
May Allah bless his soul and place him among those whom He favored.
