Ms. Watson was my dear friend and one of my mentors. We spend many Saturdays shutting the malls down in Columbia. I always cherished our talks and the advice she gave me. Her fashion and hair was always on point. I will miss you Ms. Watson. It brings me peace to know that you are no longer suffering. May God bless the Watson family during this time of grief.
