Family News

 A place where you can find the latest news about the entire family
  • On 2 December 2005, My Mother Ada Elenora Kampf (Glatz) passed away due to heart and lung disease from which she suffered for years, mainly due to her smoking habit and unhealthy lifestyle.  She will be missed by all and we hope that God will take her to his side, for she was always a good person within her heart, thinking of others before herself all through life, especially where her kids were concerned.  She overcame pride and many times even gave up her dignity just to take care of her children.  She will be sorely missed by all.
  • Our Mommy continues being happy in her role as a full time housewife and Mommy.  She continues to take good care of Michelle, Tony, Dominik and Papa. She still is doing some occasional volunteer work for the village and now her newfound desire to buidl the new hosue in Chiang Mai is definitely keeping her busy. 

Varied views of the house

A note from Michael:  Sometime I feel guilty for having had so much in the way of a wonderful life.  First having been so very lucky and now, later in life, having such a fantastic family, yet haven given others so little of me throughout life.  The largest and most important part in my life until the present were my twenty years of military service and my time in Vietnam.  Later, I lived the American dream, which I created for myself as a businessman, in Italy and Europe.  I had earned the financial freedom, that I had never known.  I was intoxicated by it for a long long time, before finally waking up one day and seeing life for what it was.  Now while starting to become older and wiser, as was my Father, in my cherished memories of him, I am able to truly appreciate the present, for these are our life's best moments.  I watch daily and intently as our children grow, mature and develop into almost identical copies of Songsri and me. It seems that our Gods have blessed us, for they seem to only have the good characteristics from both of us.  It is still a time when our children listen and learn from our tales of  life and where we can make a significant difference in their futures, by teaching them to be better than we were and to give more of themselves than their Papa and Mommy ever did.  Hopefully the world may become a better place for it.
