The Death Of King Of Thailand

“I extend my deepest sympathies to the people of Thailand on the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

His quiet dignity, unyielding love for his country, and strong determination to bring progress to Thailand made him a revered figure in his nation and throughout the diaspora — including Los Angeles, home to the largest Thai population outside of Thailand and the first officially-designated Thai Town in the world. Having lived in Thailand as a student, I know firsthand the love and pride that His Majesty stirred in his people.

The thoughts and prayers of people everywhere are with Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and the entire family, along with the millions across generations who knew His Majesty as their leader, defender, and the living embodiment of their accomplishments and aspirations.”  Mayor Eric Garcetti
