I will miss your pop in visits and our chats at the salon 🙁
Dear Penny and Harry, Jean and I are deeply sorry for your very painful loss of two loved ones only days apart. I felt that Nick was almost like a brother to me during his early years in America, and I will greatly miss his stories about Greece when we would occasionally go out to dinner together. His and your loving kindness toward my parents will always be remembered and greatly appreciated. George and Jean Canellos With
