Greek-American Ioannis Athanasopoulos Dies at 22

December 31, 2021

NEW YORK – Ioannis Athanasopoulos December 7, 1999 – December 25, 2021.

Your gentle face and patient smile.
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each Yianni
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled
the heart
That loved us well and true.
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts
are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face
No one can fill your vacant place.
