Sam Melkonian was a mainstay amongst the Melkonians, Donigians, Donabedians, and many others for many decades. The Armenian picnics and church services were central to our clan, before and after arriving to the USA. Memories of visits with Queenie's relatives on the West side NYC and memorable joyous visits to Maylan's grocery store run by Manoog Michael Donigian, on Broadway near intersection of125th street. By now Sam is smiling. He is smiling with his usual big beautiful grin that everyone remembers. He is in peace now with his arms around our beautiful loving ancestors. Peace be with him, his relatives and those who preceded him. ~Donabedians, Demirjians, Donigians, Javians~
