SO So sorry to see this wonderful store with it's lovely and very empathetic brother team close. We started together 67 years ago (my parents bought their home on Gerome Ave) and we are still enjoying your services. You have been so good to my mother in her later years...even coming to her home to help her. We will miss you but we are so happy that you will finally get some time for yourselves. May God be with you and your family. Rhea Nannas Stassou
