Jim and Loved ones,
Please accept my condolences, I was completely devasted to hear of Chris’ passing. She was one of my favorite clients. It was my pleasure to do her hair and share many laughs with her. She always brightened my day and the sound of her laugh will stay with me forever. I am heartbroken. Your family is definitely in my thoughts and prayers.
