The love of our life, our creator, it saddens us to utter these words, our mother Helen Papajohn passed away on Greek Independence Day (freedom). She was two months away from 90th birthday. She had four boys, even the dog was a male. She was our teacher our Queen. The sadness and hurt can’t be described by mere words. Her memory and spirit will live within us all for eternity. She will be joined together with our father in God’s Kingdom. Her life as all of ours was full of joy and at times sadness. Life is good and not fair, there’s a balance. She passed with no pain or suffering in our arms and for this we thank you God. Probably the hardest things we have ever had to endure. We love you mom you’ll be missed and never forgotten.
