  • Thea Lisa,
    I cant believe you are gone, I am still in shock. We will all miss you greatly and there will be an empty space in all of our hearts. You had a wonderful personality, you could talk to a complete stranger and brighten their day. I know you are up there with Baba, Papou, Dean, YiaYia Sotira and Papou Demosthenis, and your Dougie. Your our new angel now, God takes the good way to soon.” If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane.I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again.” Rest in peace Thea Lisa i will always love you. Love Always, Rena xox
