So many beautiful memories of so many good times together with Ida and Henry are flooding my heart as I read the beautiful tribute to a great lady, your mother, Ida. When I met my late husband, Tom Yalanis, he introduced me to your warm, welcoming and loving family and their wonderful group of close friends. All of the good times, of course, included Israeli and Greek music and dancing!
Esterina, Joe and Annie, and your families, I hope you find comfort in knowing what a remarkable couple your parents were, how proud they were of all of you, and how much they loved you. I feel privileged to have known both of them. I wish you all the love you need to find peace.
Sending you love, Melanie Yalanis
