I am not sure you will remember me but you styled my hair for many years. During that time you talked with such love about Chris and the wonderful life you had together. After reading his obituary in today's paper I wanted to reach out to you. I know that you have a close family and strong faith in God and truly hope that you are finding comfort, support, and solace from them in what must be such a sad and difficult time for you. I am thinking of you, Virginia Duquet
