Dear Nicole & Nan, As you grew up, your mom & dad were longtime dear friends, neighbors, and dad, a valued colleague, who enriched my life with his specialized knowledge, calm, happy personality & extraordinary common sense. It is hard to find words to express my sorrow at Fannie passing so early from this life. I remember the good times when we laughed together about how our children were growing up so fast and making their way in a world we didn’t quite understand as we fretted about the risks you were taking. Mom & Dad were certain that you would be successful and you were.Both were so proud of you and your accomplishments and the way you matured into delightful, well educated young ladies. Yes, your dad will take of Fannie forever. May our Lord continue to bless and protect you and your families. Mom & Dad lavished their love and culture on you and I’m sure you will continue that soul enriching “GREEK” tradition with your children.
