Let the memory of loving and beloved Helen "Lily" be with us forever
Lily darling, when your beloved family and friends touch your lovely works of embroidery that you so generously gave as presents or read your evocative cards that you never forgot to send your relatives and friends, we feel that you are watching over us in spirit. We grieve not, nor despair, because we shall meet again on a divine plane as Jesus assured us: ‘I said, "You are gods"’ (John 10:34).                                                                      ♥♥♥  Dimitri

"Από τις πιο όμορφες αναμνήσεις των παιδικών μου χρόνων θα έχω πάντα στην καρδιά το χαμογελαστό πρόσωπο της Νονάς, που πάντα με γέμιζε δώρα αλλά περισσότερο ακόμα με την αγάπη της και τα καλά της λόγια. Με γέμισε λύπη αυτή η είδηση που έλαβα με μεγάλη καθυστέρηση κι ακόμα πιο πολύ λυπήθηκα που δεν μπορέσαμε να ειδωθούμε μια φορά όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Θα είσαι πάντα χαμογελαστή στη μνήμη μου."
