Tribute to my uncle

My dear uncle Antony died in Athens yesterday and we are heading there for the funeral. May he rest in peace. He lived a long full life and I am glad my mum had the chance to meet him ten days ago and be with him and chant Christian psalms with him for the last time.We had the chance to meet him in summer for the last time too.
My uncle like all our family was from this beautiful city, Constantinople.
As a tribute to him and all our family some photos from our trip there back in 2011.
 Holy Trinity Church
  Saint George Patriarchal Church
 Chora church
Hagia Sophia

I see a lot of yourself when seeing him on this photo.
Love your way & your family's.

Rest in peace to your uncle. Grief is the price we pay for love I'm afraid. Despite the sad circs I hope you enjoy meeting up with your family.
