Saya’s Farewell Message (via Than Than Soe)
From Sayagyi Dr. Aung Gyi
My wife and I are very sad to know that Dr Win Thein had passed away.
He was one of the nicest persons that I have known in my life.
He was a very good, decent person with goodwill to all and with malice towards none.
I have never seen him getting angry with anyone.
He was always helpful to me and my wife. I will miss him a lot, particularly as I made him a promise to look him up as soon as I arrive Yangon in my next visit to Myanmar.
My wife and I pray that he will have a better next life.
Please send our condolences to his family.
With warm regards
From Saya Dr. San Hla Aung
