Add My Condolences

I am so unbelievably sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I was her hairdresser and I looked forward to her appointments every 4 weeks. She was always so happy, positive, and caring. She will be deeply missed by myself and all of the girls in the salon.

Mary was kind, with a sharp wit and had a gift for reading people. She could see to the heart of you and tell you exactly what you needed to hear. She was a valued colleague and a wonderful person. She will be dearly missed. My heart is with her family.
