    We are deeply saddened by the news of Freya’s passing. Please accept our most sincere condolences Aung Choon. Reminds me of the days in the late 90s when I stopped by at your place in Madison each time I traveled from Minneapolis to Flint. She was the most kindhearted and gracious host despite all of us still struggling then. Please take comfort in knowing that you now have an angel watching over you. Take care of yourself too now. TNO & Aye Mar.

    My sincere condolences go to the family at this trying time. There is a Bible passage that comforts me greatly. Jesus promised he will resurrect our loved ones. John 5: 28 and 29. When earth becomes the place of peace Jesus talked about at Matthew 5:5, then we will live the promise of everlasting peace. Psalm 37:29. We have a promise from God at Revelation 21:3,4. There will be no more death and pain. There is more comfort to be read about in God’s Word, the Bible concerning the resurrection and reuniting with our loved ones. May God’s peace be yours. Isaiah 26:4.

We would like to thank and express our gratitude to all our family, friends, and colleagues.

Freya and I could not make this long, arduous, challenging journey of our life without your support, help and encouragement.

Finally, as all you know, Freya can escape smoothly without hardship from this tragic entrapment and comfortably rest in peace.

Although we accomplished this journey, it would not be easy without all your physical, mental, and spiritual support.
Our special thanks and appreciation go to Ma Moe, Daw Aye Aye Win, Ohn Myint Yee, Daw Shwe, Naw Mi, Karen Phillips, and Kim Pierce for assisting Freya’s personal needs around the clock.

We are very much grateful to Deaconess Hospital, Ohio Valley Pathologists, and Deaconess Hospital Lab, for allowing us to practice as usual during these special years.

We like to express our special gratitude to U Kuthala and all the monks, Dr. Carol Ann Goodman, Dr. Mary Tadros, Dr. Julie Gerhardt, Dr. Ashley Richeson, Dr. Kenneth combs, Dr. Arthur Bentsen, Tracy Stephens, palliative care team, hospice care nurses and visiting nurse association.

Finally, we really appreciate the Burmese Buddhist association of the area (Owensboro, Louisville, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Bowling green, Nashville, etc), and the hard working Burmese immigrants of Owensboro for all the best help whenever possible.
