Every Saturday morning when I was younger- a trip to Dunk's and then to K-mart to pick out a new Barbie
Hitting every holiday parade there was. Standing on the side, buying from all the street vendors on main street-hats, flags, etc.
Thursday night Spaghetti
Sunday night dinners
Visiting in Boston 12 years ago when he was first diagnosed
Hearing the same stories every few months- all about what my aunt and uncle did when they were growing up.
Playing the game where I would run around the couch, and he would hold his arm up and act like a bridge I could not pass
Hiding candy in his car for me
His pink polo shirt :)
Going to church with him while he worked in the office
Riding bikes together when I was little
His "special medicine" on Sunday afternoons
Always being called "Doll" in Greek--"Koukla"
Getting a few bucks here and there- when YiaYia was not looking
Talking about sports and politics
Many trips to "The Big One"
His purple Cadillac
Sleeping over when I was little and jumping on YiaYia and Papou's bed when I woke up in the am
Hearing "Hi, my girl!!"
....and SO many more wonderful things
He was the only grandfather I knew and loved so much. He would do anything for me. I am so glad he is no longer sick-he is rejoicing in heaven now.
I Love you, Papou! Thank you for being the best grandfather any girl could ask for. Enjoy being in the presence of our Savior! I miss you so much!
