Say hi to grandma for me

My mom passed away around 5:30 p.m. PST or 7:30 a.m. August 21 Bangkok time.

I’m taking the 11 p.m. flight out tonight. It’s a non-stop from LAX to BKK so there will be no update until I get there.

If you’d like to do anything, please check out Thai Red Cross Society website and make a donation. That’s my mom’s favorite charity. May it be meals for the infirm monks, or disaster relief. Whatever you’d pick. I’d link this for you guys but I don’t have time right now.

Those in Thailand, we will be at Wat That Thong, Sala 7. Cremation ceremony is scheduled for this Sunday.

So, off I go. Will be back to update once I get over there and settle in.

    Hi girlie!

    My thoughts and prayers are of you and your family during this difficult time. May beautiful Khun Noi rest in peace and may her spirit help to teach us what real freedom is. I’ll never forget her kindness, hospitality, and wicked sense of humor. She loved you lots, and will continue to love you always! I love you too! As always, call me whenever you need to talk. Kapkhunka Khun Noi, for everything! 🙂
