We have learned that our friend and driver, Sopin Boonkiat, has passed away after a long illness in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our thoughts are with his wife Tim and their children as well as his sister and mother, all of whom were our neighbors when we stayed in Chiang Mai. Thank you to our friends at the Galare Guest House for letting us know.
In 2010, Ann wrote about Khun Sopin on Mingeity, and we felt it was right to post the link again now. Here is Blessings far from home.
Thank you for all the happy times, all the laughter, and all the hours of story-telling as we drove in the Super Saloon. Rest in peace, dear friend.
