Oh my precious friends. Your family holds such a special place on my heart. Your Mom was, not only a valued customer in the beauty salon, but a dear friend until the end. We ran into your Dad quite often in the grocery store of all places. We always had a long conversation. I remember when I use to trade his perms for dog food... so funny. He was always smiling and telling funny stories. He was a jewel. Love and prayers for all.
