I’ll never forget when Auntie Esther first got the news that she was going to have to take treatments that would probably make her lose her hair. I was a hairdresser back then so of course she came to me and said “Missy, I want you to shave it all off!” There was no way I could do that! She had such thick beautiful hair! She told me that if I didn’t do it then she would and we literally fought for my clippers! Well, she won and I shaved her head and cried. She hugged and kissed me, told me she loved me so much. I’ll never forget her. I’ll love her forever. ❤️ Big G
