Last night Thai time, 10,25 am US time, our good friend Pat Smasne passed away in a hospital in Washington state.

Pat has lived here in Chiang Rai the last 10 years and before that he lived some years in Loei province.

Pat was a special guy and a very good guy. We, his friends will miss him very much!

RIP Pat !

Yep, a one of a kind Chiang Rai personality. He always had interesting anecdotes about his life to relate. He knew he was in decline for some time, and he never ever sought sympathy or anything like it. When he recently went back to America for some last ditch treatment from the VA Hospital, he told most of us that he would be back. His departure from us was like you would expect to see from a cowboy hero in an old picture film... calm, matter of fact, some life regrets (but left at that, no details.) And he rides off into the sunset... I hope he has his log cabin with the overlooking view of the big river.

R.I.P. Ol' Pardner! You won't be forgotten.

My wife heard from a friend of ours that a mutual friend John Skliros (I believe that is his last name but I have never seen it written.) died today. He was looking quite frail when we saw him at Sunday brunch recently. He was always an upbeat but low-key gentleman and spoke with a wonderful South African accent. No word on a funeral yet.

The monks and all guests will be served lunch from around 11.00.

After that the coffin will be moved to Den Ha Crematorium 400 meter north of the temple.

Cremation ceremony will take place around 13.30.

You will find Wat Chetuphon on this link and Den Ha Crematorium you see 400 meter straight north from the temple.

Sorry if this is redundant, but Jay Briel passed away in April this year.   He was in his 70's.  He moved from Florida and Puerto Rico to reside in Pattaya for about 2 yrs.  That was too crazy, so he moved up here to Chiang Rai about 8 yrs ago, when I met him and we became best buddies.

 

Jay loved his fast motorbikes.  He was one of the first people in the US to open a 'fitness club' (in Miami) and met Arnie Swarzenegger when Arnie first came to the US.  Jay kept fit, and had a lot of Thai girlfriends.  He loved golf, but he lost an eye in a golfing accident.    He was one of the coolest guys I've had the pleasure of knowing.  Rather like a cross between Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood.  He and I traveled around northern Thailand together.  Every moment was memorable.
