While Bob stayed with Pete, I remember taking LuEllen to weekly hair appointments when she was staying in New Smyrna Beach. Before the first appointment was half over, everyone in the salon was having a wonderful time with her. She lit up the room and her light will continue to shine through all who knew her. She was a great lady and we were so lucky to have known her.
