To Granny's family - Though I worked with her daughter, Jeanette, I met "Granny" through her granddaughter, Joan, who has been my hairdresser for years. She was a spry, happy, inquisitive lady. There was a presence about her....she was what I would envision a true matriarch to be! I was always happy when our hair appointments coincided. When Joan was not going to be available for her Friday appointment, she made sure that someone else at the salon did a test run on Granny's beautiful, long silver white hair. There was never a time I saw her that she did not make me laugh! It is hard for me to imagine the changes she had seen in her 95 years on this earth.
I always enjoyed hearing stories from Joan about what had been up to, and it certainly seems she kept everyone on their toes.
I was unaware of her passing, though I knew she had been in declining health. I would have liked to have personally paid my respects to this wonderful, lively lady whose strong presence I'm sure will be missed by all of those who loved her.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I'm sure there are many memories to be shared about Granny, and those memories will keep her alive in all of your hearts.
