Oh Sadie, I will miss our shopping trips more than you know. And sneaking around getting "no-no's" with you saying "Don't tell the FBI (Dena)". I am so honored to have had you in my life, but I know you are with Papou, Kris and Ted now. I will strive to have Brooke grow up just like you. You always did everything right, never cutting corners or trying to get away with anything. As you would say, "It is what it is". I love you, I will miss you terribly and you rest easy... Oh yeah, and I will try to find the rest of my pants :) May you rest in peace my Dear!!!

My condolences to the entire Kitsos Family.
Eva was my first office buddy and "mentor" when she returned from her vacation at CIGNA back in 1966 and I was sitting at her desk. This perky 17 year old kid sitting and using her typewriter! We became fast friends and stayed that way for many years. She attended my wedding; I grew to know her family, especially Kristine and heard many admirable stories of her son, George. I have a special spot in my heart for this kind and warm woman. She will be missed by many. . .rest in peace dear friend.

My condolences to the family of Eva Kitsos. For some 40 years I was a neighbor and though I only saw her occasionally I was always impressed by her caring nature and friendliness.

George and Kristine,

I don't know if you remember me, its been many years. I just learned that your mother passed away and am very sorry. Although, its been many many years, I remember her as such a kind woman. She always welcomed me in your home with warmth and love. My mom died in 2018 at the age of 94 and I lost my sister, Mary in 2010. I would love to hear from both of you and what you've been doing during these many years, how fast the years have gone by. I remember both of you very fondly. Love, Sophie (Faraclas).
