Allan and Linda,
I was Mrs. Raymonds hairdresser for a number of years. We enjoyed many conversations and laughs together. She was a great Lady. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to the family.
I will always remember the warm conversations that I shared with Melvina during our Sunday morning visits. She was such a faith-fulled and loving friend.
