Hi Mrs Martin,
My name is George Kalmantis and I live in Athens Greece. I was a postgraduate student in the University of York in 1996-1997 and since then I used to listen to BBC radio York even now that I live in Athens, because I have so many beautiful memories from the city of York. I have two kids, aged 10 and 4 and two years ago, while my eldest was on a summer camp and after I had a terrible car accident, I realised that life can be so suddenly ended without having the chance to be there for our kids in the happy and difficult times as they grow up. Then I started writing my personal beliefs about life, my memories as a child and all those inner fears, ambitions, hopes and thoughts just to give the chance to my children to know who was really their father and to give them some guidence just in case I wasn't there for them.. Unfortunately I have left unfinished that book, because the daily routine leaves so little free time.
Yesterday, while at work, I listened to that excellent programme of Liz Green at BBC radio York where your son was invited and described his personal story. I was really moved by his dignity and the anxiety and hope that everything will turn out fine for his beloved kids and wife. I beleive that life doesn't end when we stop breathing but we continue to live through our kids and our loved ones and the precious memories and thoughts they keep in their hearts for us.
Let me give my sincere thoughts to you and your family.
