In trying to get in touch with Saya a few days ago, I learned from their son who is in Canada that Saya Ma Daw Than Than passed away December 5th, 2004. Saya is in Yangon right now. Saya Ma was diagnosed to have Cancer a few years back and they went back recently to see if they could receive better medical care back home.
Hope you can post it at our ex-RIT web site for friends, students and colleagues to know
