'SunSan' ( Henning Wessel) has passed away

This is a free speech zone where you can discuss and debate everything Cambodia related whether you're a dyed in the wool leftist, a liberal or somewhere to right of Attila the Hun. This is also where you get to read the news the local media suppresses.

danny and I will be at Garage c.7.30 Friday.

Mint got the money Hennings sister sent yesterday but after a long struggle. for reasons i cant go into, for Mint cash in hand is far preferable to sending money to her via a bank. she doesnt have any account.

she wants to sell a bed tv dvd player etc. I'll take pics on Sat and post.
generally, I think giving cash when shes ready to leave for Bangkok is fine.

I can't think of a better place than Garage. Sounds like we'll meet around 7ish.

I think it makes sense to ask Mint how she would prefer to receive the money. She probably has a good sense of whether her neighborhood is dangerous or whether getting the bank/family/whatever involved is more risk for her! She's an adult and I think she can decide whether she'd prefer cash in Cambodia or a bank transfer in Thailand.

It sounds like Cambod is taking contributions via Paypal, Andy is taking contributions via bank transfer with ACLEDA and CAMPU, and jm is taking cash contributions. I can take ANZ contributions for anyone in Cambodia that would prefer to do it that way (might just be Hanno), and I'll deliver to jm/Andy/Cambod at Garage.

*Sorry, just saw that Andy clarified the cash vs bank issue

I gotta say, it's the measure of the man, to see his friends step up so fast and in such numbers.
I believe he's left more than a few good ones behind to carry on.

I've got to back Gasser on this comment.
If you look at the posts of condolences on K440 and several other sites he was a member of you will soon realise that Henning impacted 100's if not 1,000's of people in a very positive way.

He had nearly 24,000 posts on TT, and the common theme was offering assistance and information.
He could go to any part of Asia and be welcomed with warmth and friendship.

If when my time comes to pass away I got 1/100th of the accolades Henning has received I'd believe my life well spent.

Yeah, giving her cash-in-hand seems fine to me. I'm guessing thousands of Cambodians and Thais safely make that trip with their life's savings on them every day.

Ok, see you all 2moro. Goodnite.

We went to visit Mint today. She's doing as well as can be expected. She's concerned that flooding in Thailand might delay her departure and she'll have to vacate tge house. She can't fly due to her luggage. She'll be rejoining her family; also, she has health issues herself and will get better care, on the 30 baht medical scheme in Thailand.

It will take me 3 or 4 days to get photos up, but she wants to sell a bed, fridge, TV and DVD player, all quite ild, plus an aircon unit and Henning's 3 very nice tailored suits. She'll accept any offers.

She doesn't have a bank account in Thailand and might have problems opening one. She'd much rather people would give her cash to take with her. She's extremely moved and grateful for all the love and support from you guys.

Would love to chip in but currently in a dire situation. The wife asked me to pass her condolence. A great man he is.

Shoot, I did not look in this topic for some time. Would like to donate some money but don't have any bank account here. Can I drop by at Garage any time? What is jm's reallife name?

I did not know mr Wessel had a Thai wife. My wife is Thai and she has more family-members here as well (all from Surin). If we can translate or provide support in any way please PM and I pass it on.

Where does Mint need to go in Thailand and how much she has to bring? We have some other Thai connections that drive up to I-saarn on a regular schedule. Other destinations I will have to check.

Hopefully she can return home soon and receive the support of her family. I can only imagine how she must feel now.

Thanks.

I just wanted to remind everyone that Cambod is taking contributions via Paypal, Andyinasia is taking contributions via bank transfer with ACLEDA and CAMPU, and jm is taking cash contributions at Garage on Street 110. I am taking ANZ contributions for anyone in Cambodia that would prefer to do it that way.

We are meeting Mint to deliver the money this weekend before she heads to Thailand. Her situation sounds pretty grim and I am sure Henning would be happy that we are helping her. We've done a great job so far but I am hoping we can come up with a lot more. Please PM me if you'd like to make other arrangements to donate.
