Andrea was such a tremendously fun person, full of life and light. I had been going to her to get my hair done since she worked at Great Clips, and I looked forward to that time. From catching up on life, finding out things we had in common, seeing Gage in the back room and "tipping" him when I came, always laughing about everything. Andrea has been an amazing woman and mother, and I will be praying for her family. She will be dearly missed!
