  With a heavy heart I state that Giovanni Joseph Vasko/Donald Hill Simpson III(name change in 2009) died January 12, 2020. Gone is his wonderful light in my life.
   Giovanni/Donald was a precocious child, teaching himself to read at the age of two to impress his brother who would read to him. The awards to him in the Cobb County School System were numerous, over and over and over again. My favorite is when he won for Mableton Elementary their first gold medal for Science Olympiad. What a wonderful day that was. He got himself into the University of Chicago, a feat of grand proportions, where he became a member of Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. You can see in his Facebook “Giovanni Joseph” his love of art. He was a gifted writer. A loving person. For sure the world is less with the absence of this young man. Sadly, mental illness shows no mercy                                  
   Giovanni is survived by his Mother Carol Ann Vasko and his brother Benjamin Andrew Vasko. If you so wish to make a donation to help others please do so, for example, to SAMHSA Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or any similar organization that fights for the mentally ill and/or the war against addiction.
