I am so sorry to hear about your mother,grandmother and sister, I want you to know my heart and love go out to each one of you.
She was a blessed woman. I have so many fond memories of her as a kid and as a young woman I remember watching her in the salon through the phone hole cleaning the salon for her. She was the only hairdresser I have ever had as a kid
I love her jam cake with carmel icing I would always pray she made one when we were coming there.
She is now with the love of her life he is most happy now
love and prayers
