Dear Spyro's lovely family, Spyro lights up the people around him. Many a day, I would go to Cousins and have lunch, often by myself. Spyro & I would strike up passionate, opinionated conversations on all sorts of topics. Inevitably, we would both end up laughing. I am glad he took the trip to Greece, I am glad that he lived a rich life. I will miss him. Warm regards, Steve F.
