    Nouna was and will always be cherished by me and all the lives she has touched and has remained a dear friend of my parents Athan (Tommy) and Vasiliki Margas. Though the miles separated us you could always hear and feel the love she felt for my parents, myself and all the Margas family those times we spoke on the phone. She lovingly remembered the early years and shared those moments when we spoke. She will be dearly missed and her memory will always remain in our hearts. We are truly sorry for your loss.
