Dhimitri through the years
The other day I showed you my father-in-law's 1917 passport photo, taken when he was 22 years old and coming to America.
I thought you might enjoy following him on his journey.
Here he is at 35 in 1930 with Ksanthipi:
Here he is at 46 in 1941 with Ksanthipi and their children:
And here he is at 65 in 1960:
A few months later his son married that North Carolina girl. A couple of years after that I married his daughter.
He never made a lot of money. He never became famous. He worked hard to support his family. He was someone the world didn’t notice.
When he died in 1983 at the age of 88, he was loved by everyone who knew him.
He is my idea of a very successful man.
