“I first met Lydia in our junior or senior year at Fitch High school when she came to our school. She was always a lovely shy & quiet person. Fast forward 30 yrs later, in 1993 I believe, & I was hired at Tel star restaurant. I was so surprised to see Lydia, a co-owner, one evening! We caught up on old times etc. I worked for her for few yrs until she sold the restaurant. I also worked with her children David, Russ, & Christine. My heart goes out to all her family. She was a beautiful woman & I know how much you loved her & how much you will miss her. My deepest sympathy & prayers to you all. Rest in paradise Lydia.”

“My wife & I met Lidia when she married my cousin Eddy. Unfortunately, since we lived out of state, we generally only saw her on special family events. She was always gracious and out going and obviously made Eddy very happy as he beamed whenever he introduced her. We extend our sympathy to her family and in particular to Eddy for their loss of a very special Lady.”
