My staff and I are so very blessed to have known Winnie for 40+ years. She was an amazing woman. She loved deeply and she so enjoyed laughter. I especially value and appreciate this last year that I shared with her and with Shelton. It was a tough year for her, but she learned to live each day as it came. When her health became more challenged, she still came for hair time each week! I cherish these years of knowing her and I will always remember how she loved me. I miss you Winnie!
Love, Linda Mangum and the staff of A New Reflection
