I visited Yangon twice in 2012.
During my first visit, he hosted a welcome dinner at Feel restaurant to meet U Ohn Khine, Saya U Aung and several alumni. His son-in-law gave us a ride. He gave me an autographed copy of “Selected Cartoons from RIT Magazines and Set Hmu Thadinzin” and told me that a commemorative issue will be published by four (or more) generations of famous “RIT Cartoon Box” cartoonists (some who made to national and international fame).
During my second visit, he gave a ride to attend the SPZP-2012 Preparation Meeting.
He posted me via air mail some MES Technical Digests.
Despite having medical problems and several visits to ICU, he gave 100% for the success of RIT-related projects in general, and SPZP-2012 in particular.
Sad to learn that he passed away.
Glad to know that his works live on.
