All our Friends are Special

All our friends are special. But some have been special longer. I don’t know if it’s because it’s our 35th year in business, or because I become eligible for AARP this year, but I’m finding myself becoming more sentimental and reminiscent. Pam took this photo of me at Sewing Club with Dorothy Friebele.

She means so much to me in part because she was also a friend of my mother’s. She did my mother’s hair every Tuesday for years in her basement beauty shop. I remember playing on the carpet near them before I started kindergarten, coloring and doing puzzles. As a child, I just loved Dorothy for her talent and kindness. Years later Dorothy needed a new sewing machine and she and her husband Henry came to us! Since then I’ve lost my loving mother, and Dorothy has lost her precious Henry, but we really enjoy having the shared memories. All our friends are special. But some have been special longer. Thank you, Dorothy.
