  2. My cousin…how handsome he was in his uniform. So handsome in fact, that when I was a girl, I carried his picture around with me and never told anyone he was my cousin. The love he had for his family was abundant and evident in everything he did. I remember lots of hugs and kisses. I grieve with my family their enormous loss and send them my thoughts and prayers. God bless you my dear cousin.

    I will miss Uncle Connie terribly. He was a wonderful father to Jim, Chris and Theodora Dallas and grandfather to James Dallas, Tiffani and great grandfather to Aidan James and Brendan Nicholas as well. He had a great sense of humor. God Bless Kosta! You are now with my loving husband Jim and your sister, brother and parents. Watch over all of us.
