I always enjoyed working with Demetra in Real Estate & loans. Demetra was always smart, sharp and quick on her toes. I will miss her. I will say a pray for her family to help ease their pain.

We am so sorry to hear about Demetra's passing...We worked together, she did the loans and I sold the Real Estate.. I haven't spoken to her for awhile so I didn't know she was sick. My heart goes out to her family and friends. She touched so many lives in a very profound way. I know she will be missed by many...

Dear Anthony & Austin,
I was truly saddened to hear of Demetra's passing. I remember meeting her at Homan Elementary School and we played tether ball together. Then we parted ways and didn't meet up again till Starr Elementary. Demetra really didn't remember me and couldn't believe that I could still remember her! I told her she was a friend I would never forget. My prayers and thoughts are with you both. I will miss Demetra but I know she will always be in my heart.
