    Vivian was always such a quiet and gentle person. Thank’s to her hair styling & perm skills I didn’t have to run around all summer with frizzy hair standing on end from my mom’s perms. I didn’t see her much when we grow up but it was easy to still love and think of her. I am so sorry for her family & friends. My thaughts are with all of you.

Please share your thoughts ...
