Deepest sympathy.
My heart is with you Jodi and his family.
I always loved seeing you guys at Moms.
Van went beyond being a hairstylist.
He came to Winchester to cut moms hair. He loved her chicken salad. We had great times laughing and enjoying our visits. Van cut my hair through my high school years and all our special occasions. He will be deeply missed.
Just remember his is with Mom now. They are at peace together and laughing.
Love and God bless
Your friend Laurie May
