Sohors Tan, 1969-2012

Sohors Tan, 1969-2012

When Sohors Tan’s mother was still holding her inside her belly, she had a vivid dream that a farmer came to visit her home, telling her, “I’m coming to stay with you for a short while – I’ll leave when I’m wealthy.” On Thursday, September 13th, 2012 Sohors made good on this promise when she passed away from an infection brought about by complications caused by pancreatic cancer. Her time with us was much too short, and her presence in our lives has made us all so much richer.

Sohors means Thursday in the Khmer language; she was named after the day she was born. It also turned out to be the day she left this earth after 43 years. In Theravada Buddhism, we believe that once a person reaches nirvana, they break free from the cycle of recurring birth, aging, illness, and death; we believe Sohors reached this level of wisdom early in her life, and so has transitioned from this life and become an angel.
