To Stella, George and the entire Papdakis family. My deepest condolences on the passing of you mother and Yia Yia. I grew up across the street from Mrs. Papdakis and went to school with Andy. She was such a loving and caring person. I'm glad I got a chance to see her on my visit to NJ in 2014.

May god be with you all during this time.

Dear Stella and Family,
Please accept our condolences on the loss of your mother.

Your mother was always so kind and sweet to all of us when we were blessed to share happy events (and her baking and cooking!)at Nikki's and Dick's over the years. I'll always remember her kind smile.

Our hearts are with you.
Peggy and the rest of the Hendricks' Side
