  2. Being married to a Greek, I have witnessed how hard this has hit the Greek community. My children know him and his music because Tina place it in the car all the time. Dealing with the death of someone is never easy, but when it is a tragic death of someone so young and by so many, it becomes harder to deal with. May he rest in peace and may all who love his music bring him immortality through his art.
