Special Message from brother Vangelis and wife Angeliki from Greece
To our beloved brother, From Vangelis and Angeliki. Have a safe journey our brother, you are now gone forever and left your daughter Alexandra alone. She had really nice news for you, as she is pregnant and will give birth with your blessings and wishes. Please accept all our wishes and love and please rest in peace with all the saints. It’s so sad you are gone that early, you didn’t have the chance to became a grandpa and didn’t manage to meet and raise your grandchild. Now our parents are waiting for you in heaven. I hope you will get our message and have a peaceful rest now. We send you our best wishes and love and we are so sorry that under these circumstances we are not able to come and say our last goodbyes to you. Maybe we will all meet together sometime soon….
