Dearest Virginia, I don't know how to get in touch with you but you know if we had known we would have been there for you.

February 22, 2013 "Thank you, Petro Vlahos, for giving to all of humanity what no one else could; our ability to view the impossible in such a way as to make the filmed performance feel real and genuine. Everyone lives a different life, but everyone enjoys a respite from the challenges of life through entertainment. The world of entertainment through film could never have reached the level enjoyed today without Petro Vlahos. His life changed the world. He will be greatly missed but his legacy will live on forever. (USA)" - Jonny Teas (KY)
