My deepest sympathies. I was devastated to hear of uncle George's passing. I remember how brilliant and kind and loving he was. I know that my Aunt Diana was the center of his world - what a beautiful love story. Sending my love.

All I can see is Mr. P's impish, bemused grin and sparkly eyes. He knew something important that made him chuckle. One memory among so many: On a school night, in the span of a few hours, he illustrated an entire Choose-Your-Own-Adventure novel that Yanni and I were writing for Mrs. Anglin's 9th grade English class. We didn't ask him to. I think he was just psyched about our goofy enthusiasm and wanted to help out. And, he was a brilliant sketch artist!!!!! The scenes and characters were fully realized. We ended up winning a Superintendent's writing award for it, almost entirely due to the pictures, I'm sure. Mr. P was a MAKER.....of architecture, food, trellises and vineyards, beauty, kids, love, peace, SMILES.... the oikos! Kalinikta, Mr P.

I am very sorry to hear about George's passing. My deepest condolences go out to Diane and the rest of his family. Although I was only an occasional visitor, I greatly enjoyed the hospitality, food, wine and friendship of the Papadopoulos household. George will be greatly missed, I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
