Heartfelt prayers for Mr. Sarinopoulos as he has been born into his new Eternal Life. Thoughts of comfort for all grieving this time of separation until the future when all souls will be reunited and all grief extinguished.

Lord, grant him peace in a place of light and green pasture where there is no pain , sorrow, or suffering.
I remember Uncle George for his keen analytic mind, his deep belly laugh, and the pet names for his family. (And I do remember there was a love for peanut butter too. It's funny the things that come to mind.)
My heart felt sympathy to Aunt Alice, Christy, Mark, and Vicki and all the family. Zoe se mas.

Mr. Sarinopoulos was a very kind man. Things he taught me in Sunday School remain with me today. May his memory be eternal.

Uncle George was always so very kind. When my father had passed, Uncle George filled in for my dad. He advised me on what to do to purchase my first car. He went with me multiple times to the dealership and he was there when I finally drove it off the lot. He was one of the kindest people I have even known.
