Jimmy died in Buriram, Thailand, earlier this year.
I was finally able to locate someone who confirmed he had passed.
I had been in touch with him from time to time after he shared with me in mid-2014 that he had lung cancer. I last heard from him in November, at which point he told me the cancer was now at Stage 4, and it was clear there was no treatment possible, and that he anticipated dying in a month or two:
"I know approximately when I will die and am amazed at the things I think about knowing the end is near."
He is survived by wife, Pu; they do not have children. I do not know much about Jimmy's life., or whether he has any children. Our e-mail contacts were infrequent, and mainly about technical things and expat life, and our experiences with cancer.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
