Here are a few photos of my relatives....
My uncle Joe, Lolly and Maria in background.
Nick even came on his 18th birthday....!
The benefit for him was put on at St George's Greek Orthodox church, tickets $25 pp, all food, drinks (although BYOB), raffle baskets, silent auction items even the band FountainHead (which my cousin Janis said played at her prom 32 yrs ago) played for free. Mike used to be their sound guy... There were tons of people there, unfortunately, Mike was in such bad shape, that he never was in shape to come to it, even for a little while. According to his brother, Brian, his mom and Lynn (his wife), he was 'hours away' from death. They had a hospice nurse keeping them updated with info on him (the church was only 10 mins away from the house) hourly. The plan as of Wed. was that he was coming! But things turned sour very quickly. He insisted they go to the benefit, and they insisted that he not go anywhere until they came home.
