The family wishes to express our sincere gratitude to the staff and Sisters of Holy Family Home for the care and compassion given to Palahia. You are all very special caring people who looked after our Mom and Baba over the last eight months. We would also like to thank relatives and friends who provided support during Palahia's last days.
