To the Alexander Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time. I met your wonderful mother through Nina who is my hairstylist. I found her so warm and so funny and so nice. Her love for her family shows it all by the way her children are. Please know that if you need anything, please do not hesitate.

Much Love to the family,
