May your cherished memories bring you some form of comfort in the days ahead. So very sorry for your loss … prayers lifted for you and all the family.
Olympia Dukakis’s performances were worth watching, because she played her characters with great authenticity. She was superb.
Recently watched Moonstruck with hubby and daughters. My older daughter commented on Ms. Dukakis’ brilliance in the scene near the end where her character asks “Have I been a good wife?”. May her memory be for a blessing.
