    I am so sorry to hear about Mae. I will always remember her with a smile becaues she made me laugh every time I did her hair. She was friends with everyone she met at the salon and loved to talk to Louis about his singing. I know she will never be forgotten and I hope you will find comfort in the times she made you laugh and always loved you. If I had know about this I would have come and did her hair because she always wants it to look just right. Love you all, Lisa
