    Shirley and Family,
    We will always have fond memories of Frank.
    Over the years when we would visit Frank and Shirley, Frank would always make sure that we had all eaten enough food to feed an elephant! Eat! Drink! was his famous line!
    Mum says she will miss you calling her “shoe”…

    What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a Buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset…

    Frank, we know your in that sunset making sure everybody’s feels right at home!

    Peace and Love always,
    Tracy, Oliver, Lyla and Shoe!

    Very sorry for the loss of your Father/Husband. I remember your Dad when I was in Junior High School. My Dad and I would come down and pick up Sophia for school and she would bring out some pizza that your Dad made, was it ever good. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending lots of love and many fun memories that I had knowing your family. Take Care of each other.

  6. Sophie Charko (nee Pavlatos) :

    Unfortunately, all too often, it takes the loss of a loved one to appreciate one’s own mortality and acknowledge life’s gifts & those dearest to you. Heartfelt thanks to my Mom for always carrying the load and for her continued dedication to her family. An old proverb, “A woman is like a tea bag, you never know her strength until you drop her in hot water”; thanks Momma, we all love you!!! -and- A special thanks to all those who have expressed their support and to those long lost friends who forever hold special places in our hearts… Papou, may you finally be at rest, “Are you hungry?”.

    My deepest sympathies to the entire family. I was shocked to find that your husband/father has passed. I was looking on-line to re-connect with Tessy & found this. I remember him with fond memories (many years ago), when Tessy & I were attending elementary school. Your whole family has remained in my memories (even 35 years later), as a peaceful/happy time in my life. Always welcomed in your home, & always made to feel like “family”. May you all find the strength to endure Mr. Pavlatos’ passing with cherished memories & much Love. Take Care of each other….Maria (Athanassiadis)Wolfe-Toronto, Ontario
