Angi: I am so sorry about your mom I really did miss seeing her. And will remember her always. She was my FAVORITE nail client. Anybody who would drive for miles to get their nails done was a very faithful person. I loved her so much.
God Bless You All

Angela and Heather:

Your mother was a very special lady and I was lucky enough to have been touched by her in so many ways and blessed to have shared just a small part of her life. I hold all the memories we shared together in a very special place in my heart.

My prayers are with both of you during this time of grief.

Love to you both,
