“Sadly, Harry Bablenis, an original member of the Island of Skiathos Organization has passed away. Harry was the kind of person you looked forward to seeing. He had no hidden agendas. He was genuine. He was the real thing. I can still see his smile…so kind, so warm, so loving. His memory will be treasured forever.”
