October 13th, 2016
The announcement from Thailand’s Royal Palace of the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Thursday 13 October 2016 is met with a great sense of sadness from us all at Manning Impex and New Loon Moon. We share in your loss at this very difficult time for the Nation and the People of Thailand, and offer our heartfelt condolences.
As the Monarch of the Kingdom of Thailand, the King had broken many taboos and set new standards by which we could all live. Unwaveringly devoted to His People; as a philosopher, an inventor, a visionary, and a devout leader to the Country He loved; the King embraced Thailand and Thailand embraced him. Though the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej marks the end of the reign of the World’s longest serving Sovereign, it too signals the beginning of His legacy that will always be honoured. It is little wonder then, why His Majesty was so revered in life, and now an inspiration and light for us all.
