Sorry for your loss. Barbara was one of my favorite clients. I always looked forward to seeing her and making her a “natural blond like Madonna”. My daughter also liked hearing stories of the kittens and cats that she and Gene took care of.

Most heartfelt sympathies to Gene and all of Barbara's family. Barbara was a dear friend since we were teenagers, and remained friends through all the years since. I will miss her dearly.
