Growing up my Daddy and my Brother would always go to Mr Frank to get their haircut. Mr. Frank would give me a dime to sweep all the hair up in his shop. My Daddy passed away 50 years ago but the good memories still brings smiles to our family.
I pray that God will give you strength to endure the coming days and bless your family with precious memories.
