I never got the opportunity to meet this lovely lady that I have always heard so many wonderful stories about, however, I know her children adored her and wants to be just like her. I am blessed to be able to share so much time with her wonderful daughter Alethea Kalogiros as she is much closer to Dallas, TX than she is home. I feel like I knew Mrs. Kalogiros as much as her daughter spoke about her. My heart breaks for this wonderful family. Although Mrs. Kalogiros is no longer in pain, it is difficult to understand why the angels here on earth are called home when we aren't ready for them to leave. I pray for peace for the Kalogiros family during this time. If I can help in any way from afar, please don't hesitate. With all my love, hugs, prayers and condolences......I extend my deepest sympathy to the entire family. Love you all, Angela Enochs
