Newly Wed 1991

Me and my Valentine for the last 16 years.
The Engagement
I haven't seen my clavicle since this photo was taken.

The Big Fat Greek Wedding.
My mom and dad called me "neefi" (bride) for a year afterward.

My parents were married in this church, my sister, brother and I were baptized there, Mark and I were married there, as well as many of my cousins and their parents, and our boys were baptized there, too. Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Justice, Illinois is by far one of the most beautifully painted I have ever seen.

Well, Mom and I are closing in on 42 wonderful years together and we pray you and Mark surpass that in good health, love and happiness. And, "the greatest of these is love...: say the scriptures.

I still think of you as a "kid". You are, indeed, a beautiful lady with a beautiful family. God Bless and keep you and Mark together for many, many years to come.
Love, Patti

This is so wonderful....memories, beautiful artwork, such talent. I cannot wait to show my daughters this tonight. I am amazed and also was able to reminisce the Karounos family tree (since I know them all personally). I love you all and by the way.....Hi Mark! Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary.
