Sotirios is Dying 

I just heard today,

It's too sudden, I just began to know him,

I have so much to learn from my Greek father-in-law.

Selfish, but I just wanted time with him,

Time to share a glass of wine,

Stories of life in New York in the '30s,

World War II in the Pacific,

Helping build the American dream --

One pipe at a time.

You will be missed, but you will be remembered.

 

Sotirios Peter Trevoledes,
Oct. 21, 1924-Aug. 6, 2010
