    Dear Rose and family, May his memory be eternal. Forwarded a few pics of the summer of 2016. I am forever grateful for the Samos experience. The pic of his 88th birthday when it was too windy for a candle so George used a cell phone light for the wish. The last one is Papou showing Chris the spring at Lekka on the feast of St Paraskevi. Much love to all of you. I will be having a shot of ouzo in his memory. Kim
