BIG Kahn represents, as the entire Family, EVERYTHING of what this country was founded on.... This hits home to me in existence that few experience. My GOODNESS what amazingness he was the brother I longed, the man that men are few, the father of amazing souls (beauty is a given) but it is their humble Christian souls.. i would give anything to have a daddy like him... sisters like his sisters AND daughters...and the world to know his babies (as he) IS WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS founded... don’t forget girls... it is and forever WILL continue to be amazing... never accept anything that you don’t feel your daddy.....God will bless ALWAYS and your family will catch you forever... This is a forever hurt.. but who could expect that ache to ever be replaced. HIS girls rock.

I did not personally know Mr. Khan Sayasane, but I am a viewer and fan of Fox10 where Ms. Chelsey Sayasane works. Her personality sparkles through her craftsmanship which I am sure is a tremendous part of Mr. Khan's legacy. My sincere condolences to the family.

I remember when he first moved to Chicksaw as many others remember as well. His personality was contagious and always made your day brighter. Seeing his pictures of him and all 3 of the girls, he was definitely wrapped. Khan Xay you will be missed but know your friends will watch over your 3 angels. Fly high my friend

Khan was one of the most dynamic people that I have ever met. I met him for the first time in middle school. His exuberance in life was only matched by his kindness and consideration. He never met a stranger and his laugh was infectious. He was a great guy but even a better Daddy. He loved his girls. I’m so sad to know he is gone but I can’t help but smile when I think of him. He was just the kind of person that made you happy. I suppose we should all be so lucky to be remembered like that.

You couldn't be around Khan Xay and not feel that there was some sort of energy in the room. If you ever met him, it was unlikely that you would ever forget him. If you were fortunate enough to be his friend, you knew that there was always a smile and laughter. Khan Xay didn't pursue happiness, it exuded from him and touched everyone around. You just couldn't be around him and not be lifted by his constant positive attitude. He also had a very kind spirit. Family was the most important aspect of his life, and everyone knew that. Always proud of his girls, you couldn't look at his Facebook posts long without seeing a picture of them. And, it wasn't just pictures OF them, it was pictures WITH them. I'm sad that Khan Xay is no longer here, but I'm comforted because I know that he's safe in the presence of our savior. And, if it's even possible, I'm willing to bet that his smile is even bigger. See you in a little while, old pal.

We did not know this fine gentleman, but his beautiful daughters along with their mannerism and their Spirits, it's obvious that he was a great man! Our prayers and thoughts are with his daughters and family during this challenging time! May the peace and love of GOD surround you all!

Oh my. Where do I start? Khan Xay and I have shared many entertaining moments together. I call him "one of a kind" because no one else has never come close to matching his charismatic personality nor his love for life. He truly enjoyed every moment to the fullest.

I admired him for his strong family ties and for the adoring love and support he had for his girls. They were everything to him. He was one proud father.

Khan Xay was also a spiritual person who never took for granted his blessings. He talked about them often and recognized God was alive and at work in his life.

Brother, you are going to be sorely missed. I'm so thankful for having the opportunity to know you and most importantly, be your friend.

The folks in Heaven are in for a treat.
See you on the other side.
Tyran!

Kahn was such a sweet, kind and great person. We got to meet him thru the Chickasaw Housing Board. With my 95 year old mother who lives there he was so kind to her when he came to her apartment. She always talked about how sweet he was and how he stayed an extra minute to talk to her. He will be truly missed by all. Prayers for his family from ours.

Khan Xay is one who will never be forgotten. He was loved by everyone he encountered. I was blessed by having him become a special part of my life when the family came to live in our area from Laos. He always had that wide smile and a way of making people around him happy. My memories of you will last forever.
