To my friend Thapana “Tee” Thiracharoenpanya:

Last updated: March 14, 2018 at 5:12 am, and days have passed and we are thinking back on the day we lost our friend Tee. It was with huge sadness I lost one of my very best friends April 17, 2014.

Tee was an extraordinarily great man who always had a focus on other people, he was “a real angel” placed on this earth, and his nature was setting one of the highest standards for any human person.

Tee taught me many things, he was there for his friends and he never actually asked for help, even if he sometimes had many things to think about and had a hard time.

He was often the light in the darkness for many people and I know how much he was looking forward to being able to do more for his mother and his family.

I was so lucky to be his friend and was lucky to be able to help Tee when things were not easy. I will often remember our many pleasant days and evenings when we were together, talked about life and were having so much joy.

Tee could live very simply, and it was quite amazing to see how he valued his work and all the people whom he helped. We often talked and made plans for his new life in the United States.

It was so heartbreaking to see how he values his work, his colleagues, his boss, his new friends, and his mother and family. I have to be honest, to lose such a friend is unspeakably difficult. We were often joking with how we would grow old together, like old friends, and enjoy our life looking back. 

Tee lost his life in a diving accident, a diving trip he eagerly invited me to join, but it was not possible to follow him this time.

Tee lost his life April 17, 2014, after he had saved his diving team to the surface, but then there was no more strength and oxygen back and he sank into his death.

But Tee, you will always be my friend, and I hope we meet one day so we can carry on the many nice hours we had on this earth, and you will never be forgotten.

You were indeed someone very, very special and a valued friend for me and for all the people who were so lucky to know you.

Rest in Peace and see you on the other side.

Thapana “Tee” Thiracharoenpanya was a very special friend, loved by lot’s of people.

We turn on one more light for you Tee, after we lost you in 2014.
Never forgotten, and never will be.
