Ellen and I met at Gordon Phillips Beauty School. We became fast friends, both starting on the same day not knowing what this journey had in store for us! A few days after graduating I got married and Ellen was one of my bridesmaids, a bit later Ellen got married and I also was in her wedding, fun times, both of us starting our lives and careers.
We remained close friends for years, but as life would have it, our paths took us in different directions. Many years later I reconnected with Ellen professionally at her salon in Newtown Sq for a bit.. I was so saddened to hear about Ellen...my deepest sympathy to Frank, Jacqueline and Devon. May you be held in love and peace .
