As a child, Wanda and Shakey were a big part of my life. They were close friends of my parents. Harry and Shirley Lekanidis. They were like an Aunt and Uncle to me. They spent many weekends and holidays celebrating with our family. My first Dodger game was spent with them. They were big fans. I have many happy memories of both them that I will treasure for a long time. They both are missed deeply. Love, Millie Lekanidis.
