To Our Most Cherished Friends and Family Around The World
Nikos and I are writing this post with heavy hearts, dear friends. After thirty-six seasons on Mykonos, our times of magic and music and making wonderful memories each night at The Piano Bar have come to an end. We have not come to this decision lightly, or easily, and we want everyone to know that while we knew that our time in Mykonos would end at some point, that day always seemed somewhere off in the distance, just over the horizon.
Personal issues in our family require our presence in the United States now, and we don't want to live our lives separated from each other. I need to be there to care for my mother, whose health has declined to the point that she needs someone with her day and night. This is one of the reasons for our decision, but by no means our only one. Best not to go into detail on all that, at least not at this moment.
What we want to do here and now is to tell you all how grateful we are for the countless hours of joy you've shared with us over these many years. Our lives have been made so much better because of all of you. The laughter, the tears, the fabulous gossip, the songs, the drinks, the sunsets, it's so much that our hearts have a hard time letting go now, and a simple Thank You will never be enough for all the moments we've shared.
We will be in touch with you as we move forward and will try and communicate personally with as many of you as we can, although that may take a bit of time. We are blessed in so many ways by so many friends.
And please know that you haven't seen the last of us!
With All Our Love and Gratitude,
Jody and Nikos
