7 Condolences for Steliany G. Tsaldaris

  • Mrs. Tsaldaris loved the Lord and her family; she never had much but always gave with exceeding generosity to those she came in touch with; she was compassionate and caring. I knew her since the late 60’s when I was a young child at Tower Hill, through high school and college, and though adult hood and she always radiated a joy and a peace. She was a wisp of a woman who wielded an enormous heart. God certainly has established a place in Heaven for her; she is resting at peace. We were amazed by her and are thankful to have been blessed by her. We will miss her. Our condolences. Paul and Lisette Bryant

  • Dear Andy: My condolences to your family and you. I’m caretaking both of my parents (my Mom had a massive stroke shortly after Jeanne died and is in an assisted-living facility, and my 89-year-old Dad won’t leave the family home), so I know that this is not an easy time in life. I remember your Mother, she was a larger-than-life character. Please know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, Anne (Kowalewski) Radcliff
