A person I loved to talk to. So sorry she passed away.

I am sorry she has passed away as I would talk to her every day at the Oregon Manor when I was there, or look for her when I would go back to visit. We had some good times together just talking. She was a lovely lady. In case her family does not remember me I am the person who would have them take care of her hair when she needed a permanent. I will miss her.
