Messages to the Halakas family may be left in George’s tribute book on this page or posted c/- PO Box 14366, Kilbirnie, Wellington 6241.

The Halakas family would like to thank everyone at Mary Potter Hospice. Their kindness, the helpfulness and guidance and of course the hospice itself for its existence. It’s a place no one wishes to be in. If needed the patient and their family get the best support that anyone can wish for. The family would also like to express their appreciation to their friends and extended family whose visits made a very difficult month more tolerable for us all. George cheered up when his friends and family visited him in hospital, and it lifted his spirits greatly. Thank you all.

A service for George will be held at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral “O Evangelismos tis Theotokou" (Annunciation of the Birth giver of God), 3 Hania Street, Mount Victoria on Thursday 11th July at 10:00am thereafter interment at Karori Cemetery.
