Condolence & Memory Journal

Ilene was a dear friend and client of mine. I did her hair for almost 30 years. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. She spoke of all of you often. She was so proud of her kids and grandkids. She always felt so grateful to be invited on the trips in the past across the country and over seas to see her children. I heard numerous stories of everyone in her family. I enjoyed listening to them. She always made me laugh. She had a way about her that made me feel special every time she came in to see me: Ilene was such a genuine & kind soul. I will miss her greatly! My deepest condolences to the entire family. With Love, Ann
