I am so sorry to hear this news. I still cannot believe it. Dimitri was a wonderful friend. Always upbeat and fun, and we had a lot of fun together. When we were in Edmonton at U of A, and during his first few years in Vancouver, we were inseparable! He was generous with everything, especially if he had baked it or cooked it (and then you had better eat two more cookies and have some more Greek coffee and take a few cookies home with you -- he was stubborn that way!) I'm sure everyone will agree he was the world's best host, with a real talent for making his friends feel welcome in his home. He was always ready to listen, or to share a funny story (or some salacious secret!) He was also, of course, incredibly intelligent and along with that came his sharp wit. No one could top Dimitri's jokes and word play.
Dimitri was a very warm and loving friend and will always have a special place in my heart.
My deepest condolences to his parents and his sisters, whom he loved so, so much.
