Sincere condolences and sympathy for the loss of the family of Helen Mavraganis, whom we knew since she and John marries, as we knew the Mavraganis family as next door neighbors in New York City, where we all grew up. Later, we knew Helen and John in Westfield, and ask we lived in Millburn, NJ, and as members of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

Helen was a gracious, kind and lovely lady. She and my Mother met while both were recovering from radiation therapy at Overlook. They became close friends and Helen visited us frequently when my Mother lived with us in Millburn, NJ. Helen and John were good friends to both of us and visited them at their home in Westfeld.

Our sympathy to her two sons and their families. May her memory be eternal.
