When her father, Stavros, was stricken by an incurable cancer, Erato wanted to distract him and make his last months as enjoyable as possible. She asked him to evoke his memories for the family and the archives of the Association of the Greeks of Constantinople in tape recorded sessions. Furthermore, to help him through his last voyage on Earth, she wrote an essay for him where she recalled all of her personal experiences as a testimony to life after death and the guidance of divine teachers. To make sure he would read it, she asked him to correct her mistakes. He did, while discussing the essay with her. And it did help him.
