  3. Mr. Taki, you were truly ‘one in a million’.
    I am honoured to have known you for so many years but furthermore I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to learn so much from you over the years. Your kindness, generosity, faith and love for others, was always unwavering.
    You chanted for so many people, for their happy moments(weddings and baptsims) and some not so happy moments as well(funerals). Yet now that its your turn, so many of your loved-ones won’t be able to attend your funeral however I hope that Loula and you Children and grand-children find comfort in the fact that everyone that You chanted for at their funerals will be lined up in heaven to receive you into paradise amongst the Angels and Saints.
    You will undoubtedly have an angelic entrance in to Christ’s choir.

    No amount of words would be enough to describe the void that your passing has created for everyone that ever met you but your memory will live on, long after the light at your psaltiri has gone out.

    Αἰωνία σου ἡ μνήμη Mr. Taki
