I loved this Lady,and yes she was the truest of true ladies.all the times we spent together,all the times I "shopped"for her at Dillards and she was "forced""to take the bargain,she loved pretty clothes.all the times I cut and permed her hair,she made me feel so special,and even though divorce moved me away as her neighbor,the love I had for her was like that of an older sister or mother figure.FOREVER
