Dear Kolping brothers and sisters,
It is with deep sorrow I would like to inform you all about the sad demise of Mr. Thomas Hoàng Văn Nhàn - Beloved Incumbent National President of Koping Vietnam at yesterday night due to Wuhanvirus.
I received this information through his only girl and I cannot hold my tears because everything has gone so fast which I thought it was just a dream. He was positive about one week and allowed to stay at home for treating while his wife and daughter are still negative after being tested. It seemed to get worse as he was hospitalized yesterday evening that made me have a really bad prediction. Then...that bad feeling came true.
We cannot do anything to help his family right now because Saigon our city is still in the lockdown and it will be prolonged until the middle of September. Thomas is not only my President but also my God Father of Confirmation. I could not imagine that Wuhanvirus will kill one of my beloved ones some day. Sometimes i wish I could understand God's will and what He wants us to do...
May the Lord Almighty take him to his Heavenly Abode and give his entire family strength and courage to bear this irreparable loss.
National Secretary of Kolping Vietnam
