  2. We will be with you on Tuesday, but I needed to express my feelings and my memories to your family. Having just recently lost my Mother and Father, so many memories have exploded in my mind. I only knew your Mother as .Mrs. Nemphos.. And that is how I remember and respected her. I only wished that I had known her more deeply. She seemed to be a very strong person. Something like my Mother. When I think of your Mom, I think of the others that made such an impact in my life. .Tina and Harry Kakis, Mr. and Mrs. Vouras, Mr. and Mrs. Christodoulos, Mrs. and Mrs. Farakos, Mrs. Ellis, and all the others that I respected and loved so much. Now they are gone, and it\’s up to us to carry on. Please include us in your lives. Richie and Elaine
