P Sklavos did not die from natural causes.

VRETOU I PROTOPSALTH
The inscription reads:
"In your long everlasting trip
you will have our love for company."
Vretos was one of the gifted and colourful persons in Mitata. A poet and musician, he owned and operated the Kafeneio in the main village square, where his son Mihalis now operates his well known restaurant.
A great amount can be written about this "legend" of a man, but I will leave that to his children and many grandchildren .JP.
