Reacting to the death, the renowned preacher noted that it had created a “funny environment.”

“My son David just passed away. It spoils everything. You ask me, am I sad? If you had a son who died, would you be sad? You should ask yourself that question. It [death] spoils everything. It brings a funny environment and it makes nonsense of everything. We always try to wish it further and further away but that is how it is,” he stated.
