    Demetris (known to our family as ‘Jimmy’ when he served in Windhoek with great distinction) was a friend to many and an example to all. We are immensely saddened at this news, and we wish Daphne and her family members strength and courage as they come to terms with their great loss.

    I’m just so shocked and also sad to learn of Jimmy Palos passing. He was such a gentleman and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn’t have known hence the shock, had I not read about it in the April edition of Dimension. My deepest condolences to his family.
