Dear Elaine, Elphis, Jane.
Vasilios and the late Margarita Pervanas were good friends with Tillie and George since 1961. They were both wonderful people with love for all. George took all our wedding pictures and all of you attended our wedding in February 1961.
God Bless.

Very sorry to learn of Tillies passing. She was my caseworker growing up in the foster care system. She was always full of smiles for my siblings & I & shared her homemade greek pastries with us. I will always remember her fondly. May she forever rest in peace.

Mrs. P was the mother we all wanted and the mother we hope to emulate.

She always made me feel welcomed in her home as she did everyone.  

All the Papageorge girls cared for her with love and tenderness.
