  1. Heleni was always there to support and encourage me. She cooked for me on many occasions, and it was always top notch. Her sweet voice always reminded me to look out for her son, Christopher, since high school, and I’ve always appreciated that trust. She will be missed. All my love to the family, from the Mosses.
