    I had the pleasure of doing Dana’s Hair!!!!!! The first time that she came into my shop in Elkins there was an instant connection!!!!! I knick named her Jersey, and enjoyed getting to know Sammy and Nicholas as well. I moved to Ozark, AR six years ago, Dana and I kept in touch and I went to see her when I was in Fayetteville for different things. I last spoke to her in January of 2012, unfortunately she was quite ill at the time. We had a very short conversation, and I am so sorry that I did not know that she past until today (1/22/13). Sammy and Nicholas I am very sorry for your loss, it seems unreal that it has almost been a year. Please know that Dana was an incredible friend, beautiful person, with a heart of Gold!! She is greatly missed!!!!!

    Sincerely,
