I knew your mother for several years, as my mother was her beautician at Pleasantview.  While I worked at my mom’s salon, I got to know Dorothy.  She always had a smile on her face and enjoyed coming to the beauty shop each week with her friends at the retirement community.  She also enjoyed the days when my son would visit the beauty shop, whom she watched grow from a tiny infant into a thriving toddler.  She truly enjoyed life and she will be greatly missed by all of the staff at Haircuts Plus.  Please accept my condolences and know that my prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
