May God be with the bereaved family. Just one word is passing – obesity, high blood pressure, heart failure, and stroke belong to one circle. Imfa sithawika and we shall all die. But deaths which come as a result of lifestyle are avoidable. Good diet, reducing weight and exercises work wonders. I know will insult me but I just want to share this important message.
