Sorry to hear about your mom. Both your mom and your dad were fine people.

Dear Lee and George,
Pat and I were saddened to hear of your loss of your mother. She was a great lady!Both your father and mother visited my parents, Sam and Celia, on Capen Blvd. often when we were young and they always had such a good time. Over the years I would talk with your mother when I would see her at Church functions and she enjoyed remenising about those early days. You two "kids" also visited at times and we played together, even though you were the younger ones. I know that you will find comfort in looking at old photos, while talking about both your parents and the many good times you shared. With our sympathy, Bill and Pat Tambacas

George and Lee and families.
My sister Helen Pullman and I wish to extend our sympathies on the passing of your mom Helen. We have all enjoyed knowing her and of course, your Dad (was somewhat of a relative or...) for oh so many many years. Family ties, church ties, but especially through the involvement in the Ahepa/Daughters of Penelope circle. Conventions, local activities, and especially, Lee, with your participation with the Sons of Pericles. How proud we all were that you reached that plateau.
I know that the happy memories that you all have shared with Helen will keep her memory alive and the sad times forgotten.
And on a side note, Lee, Helen and I are still active in the Daughters down here in Florida which afforded the opportunity to be elected a Grand Governor a few years ago.
