So "Sheikh Ahmed bin Juma Al-Maktoum" is "Sheikh Mohammed's" (Ruler of Dubai) father in law?

He was the brother of sheikh mohammeds father in law - or you can say, he was the uncle of sheikh mohammeds first wife Hint.

It is very sad. I was his personal Nurse for more than a year. And I took care of him like my own father. I treated him like my own family. I pray that he finds peace after a long fight for life. May God bless his soul. Sheikh Ahmed, Baba, I will surely miss you. from: Nurse CGB
