Condolences to Kimon. I had the pleasure of staying in their house in Kapoe a number of years ago up north near Ranong

Re:..contributing so much to Phuket as many of us foreigners do.Yes he did and many foreigner do.Complaining and commenting all the time about every article regarding Thailand or Thais in a negative way doesn't contribute anything to the community and won't bring you an honorable recognition or a medal anytime soon!
