dannadano Rest in peace and power my beautiful yiayia ️ Your life was in conscious service to others. Your heart was pure and forgiving. Your words were the bandages to all our pain and worries.
Yiayia, to me, you were the epitome of what a woman should be.

You were tender, you were resolute and you always made things happen.
We are all better having known and loved you.
Yiayia, I love you for always believing in me and my pursuit. I love you for always being sincere and for taking the time to get to know each one of us on a personal level.

I love you for your unwavering support and your timeless advice. I love you for helping me see the beautiful things in life, even in a time so saturated with bad news.

I love you for the time we've spent together and the times I wish we had. I love you for always showing me you loved me, even in your last days.

I'll always hold the last moments I spent with you so close to my heart.
You held unto my hand so affectionately and motioned to me as if to whisper the key to life.
You held the hand of my husband-to-be and allowed me to witness his tenderness, patience and love towards others so intimately.
You gave me peace. You gave me love. You gave me a dream.
I love you now and forever.
