  • To the family of John Lialios,

    My sincere condolences to all on his passing! He was always so helpful to me by giving me and Minas a ride to school during bad weather. A very quiet man who raised his sons the right way. The world is less one good man today and heaven has one more great soul! He will be missed!

  • Dr. Lialios and your family,

    While you are mourning the loss of such loving person, at the same time the angels await his arrival to make heaven a better place just as he did here on earth. There was a saying, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves memories no one can steal.”

    The Hughes Family send our deepest sympathies for you and your family. You all will be in our prayers. God Bless.
