Je crois que vous m'entendez, cher Maître. Mes hommages et sincères remerciements pour vous avoir comme prof au secondaire et à l'Université de Phnom Penh ainsi que pour votre gentillesse et votre amitié de grand-frère quand nous étions ensemble en France. N’est-ce pas, en compagnie de madame votre femme, êtes-vous venus nous chercher à Nice, pour nous amener à Saint-Tropez et à Pampelonne! Monsieur Khin Sok était d'abord mon professeur de chimie, de science naturelle avant d'avoir été mon professeur d'histoire à la Faculté des Lettres & Sciences humaines de Phnom-Penh. Mes admirations sans borne pour vos énormes contributions dans les études et les recherches de la culture et la civilisation khmère et votre vaste connaissance des inscriptions khmères. Je vous saurais grés de mes dettes d'élève et mes reconnaissances en vous comme un grand ami de longue date.
Reposez-vous bien cher Maître, mais vous êtes aussi prié de bien vouloir veiller sur nous, peuple du Cambodge. À Dieu, Maître!

I am sadden by the passing of Dr.Khin Sok who I considered as one of the most respectable Khmer compatriots and intellectuals.

Ayant appris cette triste nouvelle aujourd'hui,mes pensées vont vers mon ancien professeur de Khmer de l'INALCO ainsi qu'à sa famille.

Reposez en paix
