    To the whole family,
    Έχετε τη βαθύτατη συμπάθεια μου. You have my deepest sympathy. I am Elias' sister-in-law and have a fond memory of a nice visit to the Papoulias home in Maryland for a Christmas Eve dinner and remember very well the great coffee that George made. The few times I was around the Papoulias family I can recall George always having a great smile, which his son Elias shares. When Elias married my sister Darci, George was full of smiles on their wedding day. May all of you recall fond memories of George to help you smile.
