______________________________

Read thisthis, and this. One of my fave singers, Demis Roussos died at 68. He was Greek, but based himself in France, so, he wasn’t well-known in the USA, but he sang in several languages, including English. He was one of the best of the 60s generation of pop singers… we’ll all miss him. Opa! for a life well-spent… light a candle for Demis and ask your priest to say Pannikhida for him (his Christian name was Artemios)… yes, like most Greeks, he was Orthodox.

May God grant the Servant of God Artemios rest, in a place of verdure and refreshment, where sorrow and sighing have fled away…

Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη! Вечная память!
