  • I think I only talked to you once, but made impression. I was complaining about the wind. You said wind was good for your sail boat. Let the wind guide you and God Bless. Thank you for letting me know you.

  • Kham was a great neighbor and a very special friend. He had the best smile and a very infectious laugh that always made everyone happy. He shared his dreams of going home to Thailand and taking all his possessions and setting up a speed shop for autos as well as raising cattle. He loved his homeland and was looking forward to retiring and going back. He was great to talk to and he always had a cold beer for his friends. Kham I’m sure your in a better place and shifting through the gears of a really fast sports car or sailing on a beautiful clear lake and loving your family that past on before you. Take care my friend…..safe journey.

  • Thanks to Kham, we learned to make sticky rice. He was best friends with our son and shared a few meals with us. His hot sauce was “Hot!” What a nice and generous guy. He was dearly loved. Our prayers are with the family. God Bless

  • I will always remember Kam when I worked at Tank Farms because of his uplifting demeanor and he would call me “Professor Jennings” whenever we ran into each other. I’ll miss you, Kam, you died way, way too young!!.
