We were saddened upon our return home from Europe to learn of Priscilla's death. She was a very kind and spirited lady. She loved her church and spent countless hours teaching the children and supporting the various clubs. May her memory be eternal.

George A. Balanis and family. God Bless you and yours during your time of need. Although I did not know your sister, Priscilla, I count you as a long time friend and her deceased husbend, Dan Outland, was an inspiration to me during my youth in Newport News. You remain in my heart and prayers.

George, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Priscilla as we grew up on 48th street and later I had the pleasure of working at NASA with her. She was a wondeful woman and may Our Lord look over her and you during this time of mourning.

Ms. Priscilla had a wonderful heart and was always so giving towards the youth in our community. She was a great Sunday School and VBS teacher! It just won't be the same without her. May her memory be eternal.
