It is with the saddest heart I have learned Francis passed away this morning at 1:00am. We’ll be adding images and perhaps some audio tracks in the coming days and weeks.
Join us in daily personal remembrances of this great guy. ~ Love, Alma.
Francis discovered in August 2016 he had AML, which is a blood cancer. His brother Jimmy donated bone marrow. It looked like Francis was improving. At least it sounded that way, but you know the way Francis sounds. Always positive. But in time Francis regressed. He passed away just last week. I’m very sad and heartbroken. It seems like he is still in the room with me. – Alma 12/04/2017
My BFF and most excellent hairstress Heather is spending more time in the shop. It is business-only during cuts, but lots of jokes and chat between.
I love morning appointments. It seems to be a nice time for introspective conversation and styling. Terry comes in the morning; it is such fun. Here you go! What do you think?
With Halloween coming up fast, we have gotten more requests than normal for crazy colors. But like I tell my kids every year, “No orange hair for you!”
So once again, I can report all is well. Peace reigns along our stretch of Chestnut Street in Philadelphia.
When my customers bring such smiles into my shop and life, it makes everything about work and career worth it!
She does a great job, is very reliable, and the ultimate professional. She is sweet and funny. But the number one reason I like working with her so much? Because she is a really good friend.
“Work is never work” Stopping in for a little webmaster business, Alma does not let me go without a huge freshly made salad from her garden. She even grilled chicken in her tiny galley kitchen. I might have to head over to Jos. Bank for larger trousers. So I come away with a happy web customer, full belly, trim hair, and shaven neck. Can I move in? – jim
