    My mother Mrs. Hilda Antram was a Kindergarten teacher in MEHS – her name is on the list of teachers. Please update and pass info to her students that she passed away on April 15, 2005 at the age of 95. I had informed Gloria (Hengshoon) Winthein.

    My four children were also students there (from 1964/5 to 1977): Clive, Wilbur, Maeval and Jeffrey O’Connor – we left Burma in March of 1977 to the USA.

    Daw Nyi Nyi Shin was my Teacher for my course in ‘BURMESE’ in STD I, MEHS. I graduated from MEHS with Burmese Literature, as part of my High School Curriculum. Later, for 3 years at The Yangon Arts and Sciences University, The Institute Of Economics School Of Business, I continued to TRANSLATE between the Burmese and English Languages. To-date, I still continue to STUDY Burmese through The Internet.

    I was one of the classmate of Margaret Shin. My older brother, Anthony, was a classmate of Robert Shin. For a while, we rode in the same School Bus at The MEHS.

    THANKS!!!! For supporting me to be ‘Head Of The Class’ From STD I to STD X at The MEHS.

    My BEST wishes to Daw Nyi Nyi Shin and her Family.

    Mrs. Battle was my CLASSROOM TEACHER for STD III at The MEHS. She was also my English Teacher. I passed The National High School Examination with a distinction in Optional/Advance English. From 2001 to 2004, I studied at Blackstone School Of Law, PA. USA. GPA = 96 = A

    I want to say, “THANKS!!!”, for supporting me as ‘Head Of The Class’ from STD I to STD X MEHS, Yangon, Myanmar.

    “I will always remember Mrs. Battle”.

    “I also remember my classmate: Rosemary Rajan, who died of leukemia in STD III MEHS. Her brother, Ronald Rajan, is also my classmate.”

    With my fondest memories of Mrs. Battle and my BEST wishes to her Family.

    Mrs. Battle was my class teacher in Third Standard. She was a wonderful and kind person. I will never forget the time when I was ill and could not attend school and appear for my Final exams in March. This was crucial for promotion to the next class. But thanks to Mrs. Battle – she wrote me a note and said not to worry – stay home and take care of your health. She will let me go to the next class as my year round report card was very good. That meant a whole lot to me at that time. Thank you.

    Mrs. Chan was my CLASSROOM TEACHER for STD IV at The MEHS, Yangon, Myanmar.

    I remember being very busy learning, studying and taking examinations all year.

    In addition, I was enrolled in a ‘Special Summer Classes’, which prepared me to SKIP STD V and advanced on to STD VI, upon completion and passing of STD IV.

    This enabled me to attend The Yangon Arts and Sciences University, Institute Of Economics School Of Business, one year earlier, majoring in Commerce and Mathematics/Statistics.

    I want to say, “THANKS!!!”.. for letting me become ‘Head Of The Class’ STD I to STD X, MEHS.

    My BEST wishes to Mrs. Chan and her Family.

    Dear Mrs. Edwinson:

    It is with great pleasure that I look at your pictures posted at The Website: mehsa.org. A flood of memories came to my mind:
    1.The daily Physical Education exercises (DRILL), performed at The MEHS shed and Assembly Hall. I can still see you ‘blowing the whistle’ during class sessions.
    2.Practices for ‘The Concerts’ each year. I specifically remember 2 Dances:
    a.’The Blue Danube’ Waltz, with beautiful blue costumes, sown with silversequences.
    b. A Folk Dance, with beautiful bright orange and white costumes.
    3. Practices for The MEHS School Band. I remember playing a ‘percussion’ instrument, ‘The Triangle’.
    4. Practices for other games such as basketball, track, swimming and diving, etc… (My school mate, Kitty, accompanied me to some of my swimming and diving practices..)
    From September 1997 to December 1998, I majored in Physical Education at The Gallaudet University, Washington, DC, USA.

    To-date, each day, I am still trying to find TIME to exercise at my School Gym, Bally’s or Gold Gym. At 5 feet, I still weigh 105 lbs.

    From 1952 to 1966, I have a different CLASSROOM Teacher each year. However, from STD I to STD X, you have been my PE Instructor each school day.

    I want to say THANKS!!!! again..for supporting me as ‘Head Of the Class from STD I to STD X at MEHS’. My BEST wishes to you and your Family.

    Mrs. Violet Edwinson

    Vi Edwinson, our MEHS PE teacher, from Teacher’s Training College in Rangoon, was hired by Mrs. Logie in 1954. She left Burma in 1963 to go to the United States with her husband, Ivan, and children, Tina, John, David, Jo-Jo, twins Louise & Stella, and Paul. Upon arrival in the States in Daly City, California, she had intended to teach, but was warned not to be too hasty, as teaching here was unlike that in Burma. Instead, Vi ended up at the Mission Insurance in the Claims Department in 1963 with no typing skills. But soon after, with a lot of hard work and perserverance, she succeeded in better jobs, and eventually retired from Mission Insurance in 1986.
    Since then, Vi has been home, but in 1987, her husband Ivan found he had Parkinson’s disease. Vi herself suffered a stroke, but overcame that, however, she lost her singing skills. In 1994, when all her four daughters had moved to Washington State, she moved from California to join them, and has since settled in Bothell, WA. She would love to hear from her ex-students at her mailing address and phone provided below:

    Cecil – A real tear jerker…… There is absolutely no one who doesn’t remember Ma Evans…… I, at least, owe everything to her … for being able to hold my head up high and argue with the best of the best, in England and when working in Washington DC, and at the United Nations.

    The majority of us are using English, more than any other language and why do we speak well and why do we feel conscious of our English, thus trying to improve whatever we can improve?

    All thanks to the lady called Mrs. Evan….. as tough as they come…. but, by God, when she smiled, because you gave her the right answer or when she was pleased with you…. that was the most charming smile I can remember and you felt like kicking your heels and jumping up and down…. But of course, one doesn’t do that, if one has Ma Evans in front of you!!!

    Thanks, Cecil….. and goodnight…. time for my slumber here in Europe.

    Mrs. Rita Lonsdale (nee Johnson)
    Many of you will remember and been taught by Mrs. Rita Lonsdale (nee Johnson), our Respected MEHS General Science Teacher. Many of you who are in Medical & Surgical and Medical Research Careers today, probably took your first steps towards this, during the General Science Classes conducted by Mrs. Lonsdale.
    I am in touch with our respected teacher, who would love to hear from you. It is at Mrs. Lonsdale’s personal request and for her reasons that Ges, her son, has requested that all those wishing to contact, to please advise me. I will forward these to her via Ges.

    Thanks, and my E-mail address is ce***@wa******.au

    I was in London for a year in the 1970s and visited with 8th Standard Teacher Miss Phyliss Tin, but was unable to locate Sayama Rita Johnson. Miss Rita Johnson was one of my favorite teachers and I clearly remember her “threshold of new life” farewell letter to MEHS students in 1960.

    My thanks to Cecil for finally locating her.

    Dear Miss Johnson, or rather Mrs. Lonsdale,

    This is Winnie Tun Tin, one of your numerous students from MEHS, who owes you a lot of making Science such a wonderful subject, in the classroom and in the lab.

    Something has been prying on my mind all these years and I had no idea how or where to find you, until recently.

    I wonder if you remember the farewell tea party we had for you in the Assembly Hall? I was chosen to compose and read the farewell speech and to this day I have no idea why it had to be me, when there were others like Ashok Nath, Ronnie Bomanjee, Kyaw Kyaw Shane, Popsy Gale and many many others.

    It took me three whole days to write that little speech, where I had poured out all our love and admiration for you, not only as a teacher, but also as a beautiful, graceful, soft spoken person….. You know things like…..making Science, not a drudgery, but a joy……..and all that wonderful sentimental stuff.

    Unfortunately, I had decided to wear gloves that particular day…..Gloves, of all things and me dressed in Burmese. Oh, the vanity of youth!

    Well, I started warming up and got as far as the third page (there were about 9 more pages to go!!!) when I realised that I couldn’t turn the page anymore because of those darn gloves! I really got very flustered and there and then decided to end it and ad libbed a few more lines to finish it off.

    Miss Johnson, it was my maiden speech and I made a jolly good fool of myself. It was something I never forgot throughout my life and my face turns red even now as I think of it.

    Years later, I went on to become an announcer at the Burma Broadcasting Service and everytime I had to read the news, I had a hard time not to think of that day. Whenever that incident came to my mind, I started stuttering and tripping over the words. As things were, the news comes to us translated from Burmese at the last minute…..typed badly and with a lot of grammatical mistakes.

    Thank goodness, it was not television. Imagine the viewers seeing my red face all flushed with beads of perspiration pouring down, scratching my head in sheer desperation!!!

    And now, next year, at our MEHS reunion in Thailand, the committee has asked me to do a bit of MC-ing. A teeny weeny bit……or so they said. I’ll try not to think of you then, otherwise, I’ll make a blundering idiot of myself again.

    Please forgive me also for referring to you as Miss Johnson. For a lot of us, you were our Burmese Grace Kelly.

    Of course, we have all grown old……teachers and students alike, but the picture of you when you smile with that up turned nose and the warmth and love you put into your classes will always remain in our minds.

    Phew! I finally got it off my mind.
    I’m so thankful to Cecil for giving me this contact.
    Now I can tell myself that it’s no longer a guilty burden to carry around in my mind.

    With love and gratitude to one of the most wonderful teachers in my life,
    Warmest regards
    Winnie Tun Tin
    Class of 1959, but also part of 1958.

    PS:- As you may notice, I did not use the word ‘devotion’ in describing you and your teachings. I’m sure the rest of our MEHS will agree with me when I say that to be one of our teachers, be if for a day, for a week or for a life-time, you really must have a ‘devotion’ to your calling. Despite the fact that the rules were severe, we all tended to be a rowdy, boisterous, cheeky group…. but always united to this day, right into our second, (maybe third?), childhood.

    It was my privilege and a pleasure to have had the ‘First Dance’ of MEHS Reunion 2011, with our respected teacher, Mrs. Rita Lonsdale (nee Johnson), which was ‘booked by me’, and in our Sayama’s ‘Dance Card’ in advance, once I knew that she was attending this Major Event. I am thrilled that Mrs. Lonsdale attended, flying all the way from the U.K, where she lives, to Las Vegas. I am sure we are all grateful for her attendance. On behalf of all your grateful students, Thank you so much, Sayama Lonsdale.

    Mrs. McLean was my teacher in Burma and became good friend’s with my mother Mrs. Doris Chamarette who was Mrs. Logie’s secretary. She was then Auntie Gussie.

    We all met up again in England and she went on to teach all four of my children.

    When my eldest daughter got married, sadly my Mum and Dad had passed away so I had my three adopted Aunts there instead, Aunt Gussie, Aunt Mavis Edwards and Aunt Phyllis McKenzie.

    Yes my memories of her are as a lovely elegant lady who I will always remember, especially fanning her at school which my children also did.

    THANKS for The Article on our STD II School and Class Teacher, Mrs. Augusts McLean. The Photo of Mrs. McLean is exactly as I have remembered her.

    I was approximately 9 years of age when I was in her STD II Class at MEHS. I enjoy studying for my courses in her Class. Two of my schoolmates are Yvonne Hengshoon and Lilian Teoh. I want to THANK them for their continuous support to MEHS.

    I observed that Mrs. McLean paid attention and knew EACH of her students very well. She would even let 1 or 2 students sit at her Teacher’s desk during Class EACH day.

    Mrs. McLean is another EXCELLENT Teacher at Dagon1 / MEHS. Under her expert guidance as my Class Teacher, I graduated First and Head of The Class. I enjoy studying and playing with my schoolmates. THANKS to everyone.

    Thanks for all the information about Mrs. Mclean. I have a vivid memory of her as I was a good friend of her daughter Joan Mclean. Joan and I were in the same class from sixth standard to GCE. I had visited your house with some other classmates for lunch one time and Mrs. Mclean was very nice and warm to us. It was so good to see Mrs. Mclean’s picture – she is just the way I remember her.

    From time to time I would browse the MEHSA site and thought I should add some updates relating to my mum – Dalia Myat San – who will be 90 this coming Jan. 2009. My two sisters, Marilyn and Vernette will be organizing it and I will of course be there as well.

    In her golden years she has been mentally alert but physically frail and it didn’t help much when she decided to climb up on a stool to drag some bags down and she fell and broke her wrist bone (Colles fracture). That was back in 2005, and a couple of years ago in 2006, just to entertain us for Christmas she toddled around the backyard, slipped and fell and broke her hip. (# neck of femur). By God’s grace she recovered well from both fractures and even made a trip to Singapore to visit us in April 2008.

    Of course we could keep her “restrained” in Singapore for only 30 days after which she insisted she had to be back home. Guess that’s what – Home Sweet Home – means. Her cataract operation, before the days of IOLs in Burma – has her reading through thick lens but it does not stop her from doing her word puzzles every day as she says she has to keep her mind sharp. While her recent memory seems to have started failing, her remote memory is still fantastic and she can rattle off most of her students’ names and their siblings to boot! I must admit – my remote memory falls way short behind mu mom’s.

    God willing she will still be around for a few more years at least, at this rate – but we have to make sure she is under 24 hrs “surviellence” of course. Will try to upload some photos for those interested, later. One thing for sure – whenever she mentions or we talk about MEHS – you can still see the sparkle in her eyes.

    Mrs. D. Myat San was one the first teachers from whom I had the privilege of being taught, this in Mathematics, when I first came to our ‘dear old MEHS’.

    It is only through Mrs. Myat San’s gentle Skills & Teaching ability, and Patience, that were able to have the enigmatic, theorems of geometry, the formulae of algebra and even straight forward Arithmetic, collectively termed Mathematics – to get these to sink into my brainless skull.

    Thank you Mrs. Myat San.

    Hi all,

    My mom – Dalia Myat San, just celebrated her 94th birthday in Jan 2013 and is pretty frail physically and mentally. She has become more forgetful but can still hold a conversation, albeit with many repeated questions. She does need constant supervision just in case she has a fall and break something (again). My 2 sisters and I make frequent visits to her home in Yangon, as we feel she needs to see more of us and to also keep up a constant check on how things are with her.

    I spoke too soon as, on the 12th of April my Mom tripped and fell and broke her remaining left hip joint, fracture neck of femur. It was a bit problematic to get treatment during Thingyan but she was operated on 14th April and thankfully she is making a very smooth recovery despite her old age. She is currently still in hospital and should be discharged in a few days time.

    My fond memories of Mrs. Nott is her annual role in the fudge factory for the Annual Fun Fair that was held every December in the football field behind the school. She would recruit interested students like me, long before the Fun Fair, to make zillions of those baskets out of cardboard (old report cards), decorated with crepe paper, and on the morning of the Fun Fair, we would help her fill the baskets with paper straw filling and the various pieces of fudge varieties. Um! till this day, I always think of Mrs. Nott whenever I see fudge being sold in our stores.
    Mrs. Nott was also a hockey player with Mrs. Logie during the 50’s, but I am not sure what team she represented, or if she played against the students. Anybody with additional information can add to this !

    A perhaps little known Fact: Daw Elaine Quinn attended three consecutive MEHS Reunions 2008 in Bangkok, 2010 in Pattay, and now 2011 in Las Vegas. I am also advised that our respected Teacher was in attandance at MEHS Reunion 2001 in England, but I did not attend this. What Dedication to us students, what an Honour! Thank you so much for attending, and we hope to see you at Yangon in 2013.

    Mrs. Tun Khin (Daw Saw Shein) landed a job for herself with MEHS after finishing her teacher’s training at TTC (Teachers Training College) which is just opposite the BBS (Burma Broadcasting Service) now called the MBS. She was a high school graduate of St. Philomena’s. For most of her stay with MEHS, she taught maths in the middle school mostly Std. V and occasionally Std. VI. Her students will remember that she was the one who taught them how to use the compass, the set square and the divider.
    She used to keep the annual class photos that were taken every year in those days. One of her favourites was the one where a pupil named Alice TunShwe was in her class. This pupil later became a very popular and a leading and academy award winning female actress called WaWa WinShwe.

    Like all teachers, hundreds passed through their hands over the years and every student had a particular way of remembering their teachers. One day, as a child, I was with my mother having “shwe yin aye” in Scott Market and one young lady, maybe in her twenties, came up and greeted her. I still remember what she said to this day. She said she was watching my mother from afar thinking that must be Mrs. Tun Khin but she wasn’t sure. So she waited until my mother spoke and that was when her suspicion was confirmed. She said it was my mother’s characteristic dentition that clinched it as her canines overlapped on either side. In Burmese its her “tha det” that was her trademark for this particular lady. But unfortunately, I don’t remember who she was.

    As an offspring of a teacher, I was in an unusual position. While I was still in Rangoon, old students of my mother would ask about her and wish her well. Some were very successful and others not so. Mentioning no names, I came across one inebriated old student of my mother and on seeing me he greeted me and tried to be very protective as him being the older person but the funny thing was before we parted he said “Please don’t tell teacher that I’ve had a few drinks”. Hilarious as it was, still I respect him for his innate respect to his teachers and elders despite the condition he was in. No doubt, I told the story to my mother, she had a laugh and said “the naughtier ones seem to remember me more”.

    Latterly, the classes became bigger and with it the responsibility too, so about two years after MEHS was nationalised she retired and became a housewife. In 1972, she followed her husband to Manila, Philippines where he got a job with the Asian Development Bank. She took quite an active role with the ADB Women’s Club where she promoted Burmese cuisine and her “ohn no khauk swe” was rather popular among the Burmese community over there.

    She also discovered a talent which she thought she never had (and so did I) and that was in art. She made beautiful Batik designs (tapestries mostly and a few to wear) and some incredible oils and water colour paintings. She was already in her 60s by that time.

    After about 15 years in Manila, on my father’s retirement, they moved to Fremont, near San Francisco, and stayed there for about 10 years. They enjoyed the closeness of the Burmese community in Fremont and the closeness to their grandchildren. The highlight of their stay was when she had the chance to initiate the entry of her eldest grandson as a novice at a Buddhist monastery where my father also became an “upazin” for the third time.

    As the saying “home to roost” goes, I suppose they felt that they should head home even if it was just for a short stay. And as circumstances dictated, they are now rather settled back in Rangoon in the same house after being away for over 25 years.

    She is now 80 and a grandmother of 4 and doing a good job of looking after her husband. She is particularly touched by the annual homage paid to old teachers by old students and is ever so grateful for the thoughtfulness and the “ce ta na” shown by the students. She has been saying “Thadu Thadu Thadu” ever since to all those who are involved.

    I am so sorry to read that Mrs. Tun Khin passed away on 9/13/1999. She was my Mathematics Teacher for STD VI, MEHS, Yangon, Myanmar.

    I remember, ‘preparing for class’, doing my ‘homework’ and studying for my ‘examinations’. I like my Mathematics classes because the questions (homework and examinations) and answers are so ‘precise’.

    I remember that Mrs. Tun Khin has a very good sense of humor. Some of the students that she joked with included ‘Tun Kyaw Nyein, Micheal Ohn Myint and Edgar Aung Than’.

    I learnt to ‘exercise’ my ‘eyes’ for having to study long hours, from Mrs. Tun Khin. To-date, I still take a few moments each day to ‘exercise’ my ‘eyes’.

    From 1976 to 1977, I majored in Computer Sciences at The University Of Houston, TX. USA. GPA 4/4 = A. In the year 2004, I am studying ‘Information Technology’ at The University Of Maryland Baltimore, MD. USA.

    I want to say, “THANKS!!!”. for supporting me as ‘Head Of The Class’ STD I to STD X MEHS.

    My BEST wishes to Mrs. Tun Khin’s Family.

    I saw Mrs. Hein Tin when I went home for a visit. I think I took a picture of her. She is getting old and is starting to have Alzermiers. She remembered Jimmy and me after a while. I don’t have her address but will try and get it for anyone who wants it. I did see Melvin and Delphine Hein Tin at one of the Reunions.
    Unfortunately I never got to see Mrs. Ho but I heard she has some form of Cancer.

    I am so very sorry to read that Mrs. Hein Tin passed away on 8/24/2001. She was my CLASSROOM TEACHER for STD X. She was also the Teacher for my Geography Classes.

    I remember learning and studying World Geography and The Local Geography Of Burma. I remember DRAWING MAPS on the blackboard with white and colored chaulks prior to a Geography class.

    I remember my Geography classes when I listen, read or watch ‘The Weather Programs’ each day OR when I travel.

    I was one of the classmate of Suzan Hein Tin. My younger brother, Owen, was one of the classmate of Candy Hein Tin.

    I want to say, “THANKS!!!”. for letting me become ‘Head Of The Class’ STD I to STD X at The MEHS, Yangon, Myanmar.

    My fondest memories to Mrs. Hein Tin and her sister, Mrs. Ho, and BEST wishes their Families.

    This out of Absolute Respect and Love, and as a Tribute for the Late Great Mrs. Hein Tin – Geography Teacher MEHS.

    At the 1962 MEHS Fun Fair, I won two “Free Ice Creams from the Ice-Cream Stall”. The Stall was being run by none other than my Respected Geography Teacher. When I went to claim them, Mrs. Hein Tin advised me that she would not give the ice Creams to me till I returned with my “Girl-Friend” and Kissed her in Front of Mrs. Hein Tin.

    Ah Ha! – What did I do? I then asked the Delightful Delphine to accompany me to the Ice Cream Stall. Not telling her why !!

    I advised Mrs. Hein Tin that I had now the right to claim my Ice Creams and out of respect for both Mrs. Hein Tin, I kissed Delphine lightly on the cheek in front of her mum.

    For the first time, in my life I saw Mrs. Hein Tin, our Respected Geography Teacher being at “at a Total Loss for Words”, stunned,… the best part was Mrs. Hein Tin could not do anything as I was only, ‘adhering to her instructions, Following them to the Letter.

    I then took the ice Creams, gave Delphine one and walked away,…….laughing !!! Delphine remembers the incident, we (Delphine, Rosebud, Melvin and I) talked all about it and reminisced, after the morning Session of Reunion2008.

    Which is why I address Delphine as My Ice Cream Princess.

    Thank you, Mrs. Hein Tin & Delphine, …… you have left me with the memory I will long cherish.

    I have just been reading comments about the life of Mrs. Hein Tin and add this anecdote of treasured memory. Maybe we could compile a book of such great teachers.

    Mrs. Hein Tin had a tremendous ability to spot any boy or girl not paying attention and on one such occasion she startled me out of my day dreams. “Cedric Sharp, tell me who were the first two people to conquer Mount Everest”. Seeing her penetrating eyes and being a little alarmed, I stood up and (quite innocently on this occasion) became rather tongue-tied and responded: “HILLARY AND HEIN TIN” (instead of TEIN SING). The class exploded with laughter but on this occasion dear Mrs. Hein Tin did not see the funny side at all and made an appointment for me to be kept-in the following day for three hours!

    My EXCELLENT Memories of ‘Nurse Julie’ …..

    “NURSE JULIE”:

    The Methodist English Dagon1 High School [MEHS D1], “Nurse Julie”, has been and will be remembered as our Myanmar, Yangon, ‘Julie Nightingale’, for being ‘THERE’ for us, when each of us has ‘NOT BEEN WELL’, as a Student, at MEHS D1.

    I remember the VERY CLEAN, HYGIENIC and BRIGHT PATIENTS’ ROOM, near The Large Soccer Field, with Nurse Julie, wearing her White Cap & Top and Red Longyee, Nurse Uniform.

    During my 13 years, from Nursery to MEHS D1 High School Matriculation, I have seen Nurse Julie for less than 6 times. I remember taking a dose of a ‘Red Color Medicine’ or 1 Teaspoon of Antibiotics, each time and a Short Bed-Rest, at The Patients’ Room, for the inflammation of my Tonsils, which have been REMOVED, by an EXCELLENT Surgeon, at The Yangon General Hospital, since I have been 12 years old.

    THANKS! for our Doctors and Nurses (Nurse Julie), who have taken care of our Health and Lives, each day.
    May GOD be with you and your Family.

    For the school’s elocutions contest, students were selected by Teacher Mrs. Evans.
    I was also in the group of boys and girls including Cecil Wagstaff selected to participate in the all schools elocution contest.
    All of us has to sing a song for Mrs. Evans to judge our voices.
    We all made sure we sang the school song to play it safe with Mrs Evans.
    I remembered Cecil standing and leaning on the door watching us sing the school song.
    I still rememberers his mischievous look on his face waiting his turn to sing.

    When his turn came, without moving his standing position, Cecil looked into the Teacher’s face and sang “ There’ll never be any one else but you for me “ ( Ricky Nelson’s top hit).
    Mrs Evans went fuming and shouted “ Get out Wagstaff , get out!”
    Every one of us were giggling .
    Cecil had to leave the room at the end of this sentence!!
    Can’t croon anymore.

    But anyway Cecil too was selected to represent the school.
    Rest In Peace Cecil.

    Thanks very much Rosie Soe Nyunt, Family & Friends. I do Miss you ALL.

    Mother Molly began working at The United States Information Services (USIS) Library, Yangon, Myanmar, in 1951. I began attending my Nursery Class, at The Methodist English High School (www.mehsa.org), in 1953. I remember Mother Molly bringing me to the Entrance of the very Large Nursery Classroom, and, dropping me off, with the Nursery Class Teachers, on my First 2 days, as a New Student. I would cry for a Short while (feeling abandoned by Mother Molly), and, then, Quickly, enjoyed my Nursery Classmates, and, the Children’s Programs. I have learned my ABC English Alphabets, in my Nursery Class. My First Cousin, Blossom Ho, also began her Nursery Class in the same Nursery Class Room. However, we were, Each, in a Different Nursery Student Group.

    Kenny and I worked on the website Reunion informations and only in 2011 Las Vegas Reunion, I could meet him in person.it was a great honor meeting Kenny.

    And it is now the first time I see him in the photo holding the plaque with a big smile.

    Rest In Peace Kenny.Sir.
