I'm so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was such a sweet lady. She was a good friend to my Mom for many years. We all got our hair cut by her. She was the first person to cut my son's hair when he was just an infant and would even cut my brother's hair after hours so no one would see him going to a beautician instead of a barber. Pauline was one sweet lady. I know she will be missed by many.
