Sending my condolences to J, T, D and family. So many memories of your mom. From the smells of her cooking peppers and salty pasta to watching her make her famous Easter cookies and laying out filo dough on the kitchen table. Listening to the Greek radio station and talking frantically in Greek on the phone with friends. Remembering her tending to the house and the garden like a champ. Rest in peace Liza.
