Message from the family of Saya U Myo Win (M65)
Dear friends and former colleagues of the RIT
I was overwhelmed by your kind letters of sympathy and messages of condolence. It seemed as though time and distance have rolled away, back to the happy memories of the days gone by when all were young and working together at the RIT.
2017 has been a very difficult year for the family from the time Ko Myo Win was diagnosed with cancer of the bile duct in February, soon after his return from Yangon. As his cancer was inoperable, he went through eight cycles of Chemo and although it seemed to be responding well initially things started to change as his cancer markers went up and the tumour became resistant to the treatment. He remained positive and fought on, but sadly he lost the battle and passed away peacefully at home on 14 November.
From the time he was diagnosed with cancer, he had wanted to remain private and would not let us tell anyone of his illness and neither would he let any friend visit him. We respected his wishes and let him have his way.
My apologies for not being able to respond to your letters individually but I will try and do that in the days ahead. It is in times of grief and sadness that your love and support has helped us through this ordeal.
I would also like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to my brother Tin Aung Win, sister-in-law Dorothy for their love and support.
Finally sincere thanks to Ko Hla Min for bringing together the RIT family, friends and colleagues through your forum.
Nu Nu Yee ( Noreen ) Win
Aye, Aung and the rest of the Win Family
