I loved and enjoyed immensely working with your Mother. She was a lot of fun. Her cooking was wonderful and savored by me and many, many others. Her intellect was astounding and there was not much that she missed. So nice to see you have children, grands and great grands- I know she loved them. Vann Lowery Brock

To the Pappas family, Prayers are shared,for the loss of your loved one. In the mid 70s - to early 80s,I worked close by to the The Famous. This is when I first met Ms Pappas: I was introduced to her, by my friend, Cindy. I sometimes ate lunch,in her restaurant, with her being present. She was so nice, to me,and she always shared her beautiful, smile, as she quickly,almost running, ran her errands - from our store,back to hers. I remember her being, an on-the - go lady,and one who loved her family. May each of you have fond memories to hold tight,as you travel through the next stages of her passing. Continued prayers,Sharon Quesenberry
