I was with my uncle when he was burying his first wife Atheia and his baby son. I wish him god speed and I know he is now meeting his newborn son in heven along with all his brothers and parents. My sincere condolences to his family he will be truley missed. I have three daughters all married nad four grandchildren and expecting number five. It is a great loss to me for I love my uncle very much. I promise to stay in touch more since I will be retired soon.
