George C. Grimbilas, or simply Papou to many of us, was one of the most loving, considerate, and kind-hearted people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I am proud to call him my grandfather, and honored to have known him. It is excruciating to know that I will never see his smile, or hear his laugh again, but truth be told I have, over and over, in loving memories. As anyone who knows my grandfather well would be able to agree, Papou could be hard headed, and difficult at times, but he really was just a teddy bear who could be melted with a warm embrace from any one of his grandchildren. He was a man of equality, he loved each and everyone equally and never made any of us feel less then deserving. In the past few days I have barely been able to speak of his passing, for he has taken such a huge chunk of me with him, but I am blessed to have known and loved a man such as him, and he will live eternally in my heart. I love you Papou, we all do, and we will carry you with us eternally!

Papou was an amazing grandfather! He was loved by us all so much. One of my favorite memories was when we all traveled to Florida to attend Papou and Yayia's 50th wedding anniversary party. Papou organized the whole party and also our sleeping chart at his house. It was a fantastic time and it was so nice to two people in love for that long. They are truly an inspiration to us all and something to truly look up to. I love you Papou and Rest In Peace.
