Sweetest lady, teacher and customer I had. She always shocked me with a new blue nail polish she wanted to try. Always reminding me that I look just like my father when I was a child. Always a joy to see and talk with while doing her nails. It was an honor to know her for so long and I will truly miss her. Sending prayers and love to the family.
