Mrs. Stella P. Kokonis will always be in my heart as one of the most wonderful people I have the privilege to meet. Her kindness and love for others was a great example for me.
She was beautiful and joyful, with a positive attitude, an inspiration for her family and friends.

Lawrence, Maria and family... my condolences to all of you. This is a huge loss for us here on earth but what a gain for those in heaven. They are enjoying her plakie, pasticho and baklava as we speak. She is laughing and drinking tea, telling everyone about her grandchildren. I will never forget how she treated me as If I were her own. She would give the shirt off her back for anyone and all the kindness she shared is put her in a place at heavens door that will take her to the very top.
Stella aka Stellakiemoo... you are so loved. We will miss you forever. Thank you for showing us how to be. God bless your beautiful soul and I can’t wait until I get to see you again in heaven.
All my love,
Missakiemoo ❤️
