Good Morning,

Constantine Pavlides, who is listed on November 19, 2009's "Daily Numbers" is my father. Whoever is reading this, please know my father is more than just a number--he is a great man. He came to America from his native Greece with $70 in his pocket and many dreams--and he achieved those dreams. He was successful in business, created a loving family, is a good Christian man, and used his time and resources to selflessly help countless other people. He is warm, kindhearted and has never had one mean bone in his body. If you have a moment, please honor him by googling his name to read one of the many articles that have been written about his amazing life. Thank you. I love you, dad.
