Greece, the entire Special Olympics Family of the Hellenic Republic, and me personally SALUTE a great Man.
Sarge will always be in our hearts. He was an inspiration to us all. We know how much he loved us. He never missed an opportunity to come to Athens and stay by us.
We are deeply sorry that we will never see him again, but we are comforted by the thought that his last trip is to go and find Eunice and that together they will bless us to organize the 2011 Games in such a manner so that their vision for a better world will come true.
My thoughts and prayers join those of yours!
