I still can’t believe you are gone . It broke my heart so badly to hear those words . And although I still have my moments of tears and sadness , I try to remember all the happy memories that I have had over the years with you . From Greek Easter , family cookouts with everyone to swinging on the log swing next to the big tree as a kid then getting to see my kids on that very same swing .
Thank you Grampa for everything you did for your family , for loving us and for being such an amazing Gramp. I am so thankful and blessed to have been your granddaughter . I believe one day I will see you again ❤

Hi Grampa. It sucks that you're gone. I wish I'd known this past summer would be the last time we'd be speaking, I'd have cherished that more. I will always miss our family cookouts, sledding on your hill, watching WWF in your smoky living room, stealing your hydrox cookies, and Greek Easter most of all. Thank you so much for loving us our whole life...a love you showed in your own quiet, stoic way that I didn't understand early on but I do now that I'm older. You touched so many hearts and lives, more than you probably realized, and certainly more than your humility would allow you to admit. You were a genuinely good man and I'm proud that you are my grampa.
