Thank You Dad, this year’s memorial won’t be the Same , but I am With You in Spirit. I Love You….

To my beloved parents Christ & Marie Lekorenos

She was my babysitter but I went to her house well into my teens. Her name was Elma but we all knew her as Spracky. She had a wonderful heart, and a no nonsense approach in keeping me in line. Just what I needed. I am forever grateful that she was a part of my…
