Whether you call him Loukas, Louis, or Theo Louis, to us, he is Papou. From picking us up from school each day, to watching all our soccer games and ice shows, he was always there supporting us. Our favorite memories with Papou are playing in his workshop in the garage, helping him plant cucumbers and tomatoes in his beautiful garden and teaching us how to drive. One of his favorite things to do with us was going to Bob Joe’s for a vanilla in a cup, sometimes even going twice in one day. Papou was one in a million. He could paint an amazing work of art, and construct a beautiful building with nothing but a few tools and his own two hands. Papou showed us the meaning of strength and unconditional love. He was more than just our Papou, he was the Patriarch of our family. Papou wouldn’t want us to focus on the sadness of his death, but instead focus on the happiness in our
lives. He would want us to appreciate each other and our future.
“This is love.” – Loukas Kollias
