    Above: Greek School 1935, Maria age 9 in front Row. Includes her sister, Barbara, and other lifelong Greek friends. Such a cast of characters, all the first generation children of turn-of-the-centery Greek Immigrants coalesced in Syracuse, N.Y. One can understand the bond that they all felt and shared in Syracuse, and for many, shared for their whole lives.
