Dear Linda, I am sorry to hear of Doloris passing. She was a client of mine for many years. I didn’t hear from her so I thought she would be best in New York. She was a very sharp and articulate woman. She and I shared many stories together. I will miss her very much. I knew she had a hard time giving up Her independence, like my Grandmother did. I enjoyed your Aunt’s company while making her feel good about herself. She was an amazing woman♥️ Sending Prayers to you.🙏 Sincerely, Linda ( her hairstylist)
