As soon as the coronavirus travel restrictions allow this to happen, the family intends to make the trip to Scotland together. "Whenever it is possible and safe to travel again, then it is the family's intention to return to Scotland with him," shared Micheline. "We would like to organize a memorial service for him in Scotland – that is our hope. But we cannot say when this will happen exactly.”
