  3. Sister Sarah and Family, Oh how I will miss having Peggy sitting in my chair seeing her lovely face looking back at me through the mirror as I’m cutting her hair. Without fail Peggy almost always had a dirty joke for me which would leave me laughing hysterically as well as in disbelief that those words were coming from this sweet lady’s mouth. She always said after I finished doing her hair that I had made her day, but the truth be told , she always made my day. She was one of those customers I looked forward to seeing. I am proud to have had the opportunity to come to know her. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
