I will always remember "Kirie Jimmy" as a kind man who took great pride in his craftsmanship. He had a good life, gave much, and raised a family he could be proud of. May his memory live on in all of us blessed enough to know him.

Antonia, Ari, George and family, I am very sorry to hear of Jimmy’s passing – he was always “Jimmy” to us at Artek on 6th Avenue. I remember how proud he was to bring both Ari and George, as boys, in to the office and felt his strong sense of family extended to us in the company.
Andy Walter once said, “Jimmy has hands of gold.” He had learned his trade well and was a master at his craft. He maintained a very high standard in all he did. I treasured my personal interaction with him as well.

We would always speak on New Years Day. I will miss those conversations now but want you to know of the tremendous respect I felt for the life he had lived. It was a great privilege to have known him.

Dear Aliphtiras Family,
Please receive our most heartfelt condolences with the death of Demetre. It was an honor to know him through you Ari. He fathered two amazing boys who grew to be two impressive men. He touched many lives and left the world a better place. Our love to you Antonia, Ari (and Georgia) and George.

Dear Thia, Ari and George,

You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and we send you our love and hugs. I found this poem and wanted to share it with you:

When a person you love passes away
Look to the night sky on a clear day.
The star that to you, appears to be bright,
Will be your loved one,
Looking upon you during the night.
The lights of heaven are what shows through
As your loved one watches all that you do.
When you feel lonely for the one that you love,
Look to the Heavens in the night sky above.

With deepest sympathy,
Helen and Chris Sipsas and Graham Clack

Dear Antonia and family, we were very sad to see that Demetre had died. We have many fond memories of him doing projects with my dad, John. Well, Demetre did the work while John handed him things! Demetre was the finest carpenter and a good man.
Regards from your former neighbors, Susan, George Ben and Cameron Porteous
