4/29/09 My grandfather on my mother's side (my papou) died late this evening in suburban Cleveland after a stroke and a lengthy illness. John Karris was beloved by me and by all of us in his family. A Greek immigrant at the age of 10 in a story right out of The Godfather; he lived the last 75 years of his life in the Cleveland area. My grandmother (yia-yia) survives him. We were very close, just as I was with the deaths in recent years of both grandparents on my father's side. I will be flying to Cleveland soon - not sure when the funeral will be yet. I expect I'll be able to update the paper from afar, though my heart will be with my family and remembering my papou. Papou once visited Yellowstone; I am happy for that.
