My wife told me yesterday that a German guy called Thomas from our village died last week on the same day as the King.
Was wondering if anybody knows why he died as it was very sudden and sad as he was only telling me a couple of months back how happy he was to be totally retired and a permanent resident of Thailand.
He used to spend his time in Pattaya and our village near Nong Bua Daeng, Chaiyaphum
He dove a customised blue Nissan pickup with lots of spot lights on the cab.
He was buried yesterday on the families land, its a shame i'm out of Thailand right now and could not pay my respects and how awful for his wife to lose her King and husband on the same day.
RIP Thomas!
