Alexandra Goudas A PERSONAL LOSS of Mr Goudas


There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one. 

And there is nothing that could replace the void created. 

For over forty years, at exactly 12 midnight Sunday (Canada time and 7:00 a.m. Monday in Greece), Spyros Peter Goudas placed a long distance call to speak to his aunt, Alexandra, his oldest relative, at which time she was having her early morning Greek Coffee It was a special moment with they both looked forward to. 

At age 87, she visited Canada for the 30th Anniversary celebration of Mr. Goudas in 1997. 

This picture of her along with others, including one in which she is being interviewed by a television announcer, are also in the Archives Section. 

Στο βίντεο αυτό του 1997, στο Άβρα τηλεοπτικό Κανάλι, μιλάει η Αλεξάνδρα Γούδα, θεία του κυρίου Σπύρου Γούδα, σχετικά με τα 30 χρόνια του κυρίου Σπύρο Γούδα στον Καναδά.
Η κυρία Νίκη Σταματάκου την έφερε απο την Ελλάδα για να παρευριθεί στην εκδήλωση.
Η κυρία Αλεξάνδρα είναι 88 χρονών σε αυτό το βίντεο.

Other than the fact that she had an unfortunate accident two years ago when she slipped in the bathtub and dislocated her shoulder, she was always in good health and spirit. 
Her advice to Spyros always was as follows: Have 2 glasses of wine per day with your meals and do not complain to any one about your problems because no one listens anyway. 

She passed away quietly, on June 4, 2008, at the ripe age of 98. Ironically, this happened to be the birthday of her great-nephnew, Panos Goudas. 

May her soul rest in peace. Amen.
