My Dearest Aunt passed away in Bangkok --

Mrs. Aimee Shwe Shane --

She was the loveliest person imaginable, able to related to people of all ages and nationalities.

She lived in Bangkok, Thailand for the last 40 years, and spoke Thai fluently.

Uncle worked at Escap and before that worked for the Burma Railways. Uncle's dream was that Burma be linked up with the trans-Asian railway lines, but it has never happened.

I saw Aunty last on March 10 and she seemed more quiet and lost in thought than she usually is.

I shall miss her sorely.
