I am so sorry for your loss. Last August, Ai Phet and his wife so kindly drove the monks from Wat Lao to our house in Fishers so that we could have a Thuk Bhat to honor my Dad’s passing. We are so grateful for his generosity and all that he has contributed to the Temple and to the Lao community. Blessings to him and the family.
