Dear George Ahamnos Family:

The last time I saw George was in 1968 when my parents and I visited Calif. He was very gracious and we had dinner in his home. We had a wonderful time & I never forgot it. I still have several pictures from the visit. I am George's 3rd paternal cousin and my dad, George Limber, was his 2nd cousin.
Our sincere sympathy is with all of you.
Susan Limberopoulos Mitronis and husband, Harry Mitronis
