Taking to Instagram, both Shona and Connie Ferguson, respectively posted these heartwarming tributes to Mr Ferguson senior.
Shona's caption was quite lengthy, therefore an extract from it reads as follows: ''It’s my birthday today and it finally hit me that I will never hear you say “ Happy birthday Sho” again. I miss you so much, dad. You called me “Dup” (Duplicate) growing up coz I looked so much like you. You taught me how to be a man. How to be there for my family. How to protect them & provide for them. You taught me to put GOD first, that JESUS CHRIST is LORD and SAVIOR. When my wife & I renewed our vows you officiated the ceremony. I will forever cherish that moment. I have never met anyone in my entire life that has faced the battles you had. Physically and otherwise.''
Connie Ferguson wrote the following on her Instagram: ''SPECIAL does not even begin to describe you!❤️ We love you Fah, and will miss you dearly. The moments spent with you will forever be entrenched in our memories. Heaven has gained a soldier!🙏🏾 ❤️#RIPPeterHarryFerguson.''
Dark times have truly hit some of our favourite celebrities recently, hasn't it? Not too long ago, South African award-winning musician, Toya Delazy mourned the loss of her grandmother, Princess Irene MaMzila Buthelezi, who died after a long illness.
Death has hovered around Toya Delazy all too often. The Pump It On hitmaker has already lost her parents on separate occasions. First, it was her mother, who died in a car accident when she was still in high school, then her father died in the year 2017. It proved to be hard to accept the death of her dad, however sharing her pain on Twitter at the time, somehow helped Toya in accepting that her father was indeed no more.
Our sincerest condolences to the Fergusons.
