    Barbara and Gay, So sorry about your Mom. I have so many fond memories of taking Mom to get her hair done and spending time with your Mom. She was so good to Mama, would pick her up if we or someone could not get her to her appointment, she was such a dear and so funny. She will be missed but I know there are a lot of ladies up there that have been waiting for a shampoo and set! Our love to you both and the family.
