Aung Thu Bo, Rest in Peace

Another tragedy in the extended True Thai family as our long-time cook Saw's 19-year-old brother, Aung Thu Bo, was senselessly murdered last Friday. Mara Gottfried has the story at the Pioneer Press.

Aung was a computer engineering student and worked part-time at Lyngblomsten Care Center in St. Paul and in the Hamline University computer lab. Like Ped, Aung gave his paychecks to his family.

The Bo family are Burmese refugees, all of whom lived for a while in a refugee camp in Thailand before coming the United States.

Our deepest condolences to the Bo family and all of Aung's friends.
