Dorothy is a friend (client) not sure when our relationship blossemed but she is someone I will never forget. I have to say that of all my good memories of her i will never forget what an impact my tip box made on Dorothy. Other than getting her hair done she loved putting a nice and gracious surprise in "the box". Love you Dot you will be missed.
