For all of you who know him, Sompong's presence has been such a gift to us at Berkeley City College.  He brings creativity, strong teamwork, infectious warmth and zeal to all his classes.
I have been thinking about how we, at BCC and beyond, can offer our support to Sompong. It is hard to fathom such a loss, especially for a young person.

In the short term, if you'd like to lend a hand and help defray the costs for the multiple funerals, I spoke with Sompong today and our contributions would be enormously helpful.

Just as deeply, thank you for helping Sompong know we cherish him and we stand solidly by his side in the face of his loss.

Can anyone recommend government social service agencies, non-profits or  charities the family might contact?  Please email me and i will forward your suggestions and your contacts.

The funeral costs are huge, Sompong and his siblings are looking for a place to live and they have a disabled brother.

Love to everyone from Sompong (and me, too, I've been so touched by your generosity and kindness.)  Thank you!
