Dear Linda & Vicki,
She was a piece of work and there shall never be another like her. We have had so much fun with you and your mother, it was always a treat when you came to the salon, we have missed her (and you) and will continue to miss her. I had to go to Denver or I would have made her service. Lots of love and hugs and prayers, she was a pistol! :) Heaven doesn't even have a clue how things will roll now!
