Dear Mrs. Tsialas, Greg, John and Family~
Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your beloved husband and father. Mr. Tsialas was a true gentleman. I fondly remember him coming to church wearing a great fedora during the cold winter months. May God rest his gentle soul amongst the righteous and may He grant you strength during the difficult days ahead. I was out of town this week on business and am sorry I could not attend services. May his memory be eternal.

Many fond memories of Uncle Mimi. I will always remember the heated discussion you had with my mom about the direction bananas grow! May God be with the Tsialas Family during this difficult time. May the memories comfort you and keep him close.
