Mrs. Eloise was my first client on Tuesday Morning to get her Hair done and Oh how she loved getting her hair fixed! We loved catching each other up on what we did over the weekend and what a fun filled one she always seem to have! I Used to tell her I wanted to grow up and be just like her, she was so cool at her age and seem to have so much energy and spunk about her! She loved to work in her yard and would sometimes come in with a leaf or two in her hair that we would laugh about! This morning was the first time she wasn’t there, I’m gonna miss her dearly, things will never be the same again on Tuesday morning Knowing that I won’t see her walk through those doors again! So the last gift that I could give her was the opportunity to fix her hair and make up one last time for her last goodbye. Thank you Bonnie, I know she was looking down with a Smile on her face! RIP my sweet friend until we meet again! Prayers for Ron and Bonnie and the Family! You truly have lost a Gem!❤️

I used to see Eloise at the Downtown Athletic Club when it was open. We would do some of the same aerobics classes together and I think we even met at some gatherings outside of the club a time or two. She always had a smile on her face and a positive attitude. I haven’t seen her since the DAC closed but I wanted you to know that she was always a joy to see whenever we were in class together. May she rest in piece.

May she Rest In Peace.
