From Daw Saw Yu Tint (Alice)

It was in 2015 at Fremont phonegyi kyaung, I was leaving when he called out “Alice pyan pyee lar?” I nodded and waved him goodbye without realizing that would be my last for him!! Dear Ko Tin Myint may you rest in peace. And Lyo I am so very sorry. Please accept our deepest condolences.

I remembered, when we stayed in C hostel-hall during RIT days, the tiger-skin (belongs to KoTin Myint) was stolen. KoTin Myint did not get angry and continued to boil tea- water.
