Go with Mom. Remembering all of your accomplishments; you became a licensed cosmetologist on my first birthday, but preferred to be called a hairdresser. Known for specializing in hair color, cutting naturally curly hair, hot comb waves and pin curls that no one could imitate. The redheads and blondes who had their done at Priscilla's were stopped on the street, malls, and doctors offices asking who did their hair. She trained many hairdressers and wanted Melisa and her siblings to learn the business, so they would always have something to fall back on and never be hungry. Mom did all of the latest craft and art ideas from the ladies magazines. Her floral pieces not only graced Melisa's wedding in 1988, but her designs were published at Christmas a Victorian magazine featuring the Vaile Mansion in Independence, Mo. Her floral silk flower designs became almost as famous as her hairstyles. As a hairdresser, Mom was taught to never sit in front of a customer and a busy hairdresser was a working hairdresser. We went to the big hair shows and when the layered haircut came out, it was the major breakthrough in hairdressing because it took the weight off the top layers of hair if you liked having long hair. Mom could slither hair with a razor better than anyone, so the newer hairdos with slithering was common for Mom. She loved doing updos for her brides and cuddling small children for their first haircut. So Mom, it's ok to stay retired even if God and St. Peter have long hair. My love you and our family all over world. Forever young, Melisa
