I was sad to hear of the passing of Alex Spanos, a great Greek-American businessman and philanthropist, the owner of the Los Angeles Chargers, and also the passing of the captain who rescued refugees, Kyriakos Papadopoulos who was immortalized in Daphne Matziaraki’s Oscar-nominated documentary 4.1 miles. It reminds us that none of knows how long we have on this earth, and some live to a ripe old age while others are plucked in the prime of life. It is important that we recognize the contributions of great people like these and I thank you for your coverage of their lives in the newspaper. May both of them rest in peace and may their memory be eternal.
