Yianni and his wife Dee Dee opened their own pizza parlor in 1991. The pizza parlor quickly became a go-to spot. It was known for its great food and friendly atmosphere. The couple enjoyed managing their successful business. However, tragedy struck in 2012 when Yianni died at the age of 54. Dee Dee was crushed and did not know how she was going to go on without her husband.
Dee Dee found it very difficult to manage the business without her husband. There were times when she could not even go in the restaurant because it reminded her of the memories that she had with her husband. However, Dee Dee eventually learned how to run the business herself. Her family members and friends knew what she was going through and wanted to help. That is why they contacted Eastern Bank without her knowing.
The bank arranged for Dee Dee to go on vacation for a week to a luxurious spa. She did not know that she was going to get another surprise when she came back home. The purpose of sending Dee Dee on vacation was to renovate the pizza parlor. Dee Dee had wanted to renovate the parlor for years, but she did not have the money to do so.
Dee Dee’s daughters also helped renovate the restaurant. When Dee Dee returned home, she was shocked for two reasons. She was amazed at how beautiful the restaurant looked. She was also happy to see all of her daughters together. She was overwhelmed and began to cry tears of joy.
