Memories Timeline


  1. May your memory be eternal, Thea Angeliki. You will be missed but I’m glad to know you’re with Theo Kosta again.

  2. Mrs. Hatzopoulos was always incredibly kind to me. Once Susan started dating Arthur, she invited me for Different holidays at their Fort Lee house. Our parents spent many holidays in California and Texas due to Dad’s work and the Hatzopoulos’s always made me feel welcome in their home. I remember the men in the backyard and the ladies in the kitchen and the downstairs room. So very kind.
