April 1, 2006
My name is John and I am Noni's brother. I live in Athens, Greece and I am also a smoker who quit 5 years and 350 days ago and I am still trying... On 16th of April it will be 6 full years and 2006 will mark the 7th year without my sister in our lives.
Believe it or not, there is no day that goes by without thinking of her and the fact that she died so young. She would have been 40 this past 13th of March and for sure she would have been angry because she always wanted to stay young.
I hope that she can "see" the impact of her life to all of you. More than 2,000 messages the past 18 months only! Most of them related to quitting this nasty addiction that each year takes away so many! It is really hard to handle all the love and the emotions that you are "sending" through the messages but I save them so my children and most of all Noni's son will read them when they grow up.
Many times you make me cry, not of because I feel sad but because you make me feel so proud about my sister's life and so lucky because I had her for 29 years in my life.
NONI IF YOU CAN SEE ALL OF US DOWN HERE PLEASE HELP US TO STOP SMOKING OURSELVES AND TO HELP OTHERS TO DO SO...
Thank you all on behalf of NONI
God bless you,
John Glykos and Family
