I am so very sorry to hear about Jimmy's passing.
He was always so warm and kind to my family and I, and my heart goes out to Athena and the Family. When my Mother, Brother and I were in Gythio years ago, Jimmy drove down to see us. God Bless him always.

Our sincere condolences to the Merageas family and all who knew him. Our family all loved Dimitri. He was a kind, generous, fun loving person. We loved the Merageas Family parties we were invited to at Mikonos over the years and his personal visits when we dined at his restaurant. He will be sorely missed as a friend and neighbor.
