Another family member died :(

3rd one this year. holy fuck, if we all couldn't be depressed enough.

https://www.wxii12.com/article/polic...treet/24929068

This is my cousin Evangelos, He moved down to North Carolina years ago to help support his family up here. He was like my father too, they got along great also.

This is hard on all of us, cause our Grandfather was hit by a car and killed also in the 80s.

The worse part is, he had 3rd degree burns from meat sauce falling on him in August all on his head and chest area mostly and he just had a skin graph operation 3 times already and he was about to go for another one. But being Greek, he had to work. You can never stop a Greek from working. lol

I wish I could go down to the funeral, but he wants to be buried in Texas at a Greek Church there and I don't have the time or the money right now to go

My mom is taking it pretty hard cause she knew him since he was young and my oldest brother grew up with him.

Sorry to hear that man. You've had a shitty run of luck with family. Hope you get many years before you have to deal with this again. Didn't know you had Family in North Carolina. Its not exactly across the street but if I ever find myself in or around Winston Salem I'll try to stop in and say hello.

you can tell them their cousin Christopher from Picton sent ya.

I probably won't see them till Christmas when they all come back tho. Not sure if they will come back to do a memorial here this month or next month.

I have cousins everywhere, there are quite a few of my cousins in New York, also and some down in florida.

Thanks guys, I feel bad for his kids, cause the youngest ones lived up here while he was working cause they were still going to school up here. So they didn't get to see him much when he moved down there.

I never went to see them while they were all working down there, so I wouldn't mind taking a trip down there when I have the time and money saved up for it. My family likes to keep me busy being a full time babysitter.... without pay of course. lol

Sorry to hear about all of that. I had a major death in my family 22 months ago and it never goes back to normal. Having three in one year must be devastating. I hope you and the rest of your family are gradually recovering from all of it.
