    My deepest condolences to the family of Mabel. I did Mabel and Dr. Troutts
    hair for many years. They were both sweet and interesting people. I moved
    from Bogata, and lost track of the both of them but thought of them often.
    I did see Mabel a few years ago at the nursing home in Paris while she was visiting
    Dr. Troutt. When she saw me and recognized who I was, she had the same sweet
    smile that I remembered. I am so glad that I got to know the both of them on a
    personal level and I will cherish the memories and stories we shared with those many visits
    to my beauty shop.
