Gwen was the first person to push me to love my hair as much as she did. She always would comment upon it and I would tell her how shy and embarrassed I felt. She never did acknowledge my negativity. So here is my salute to her in the only way I know to say it.
Gwen, thank you for helping me start to accept and love and show myself.
You’ve escaped this messy jungle and left the rest of us here, so touched and made better by your heart and mind.
I grew to love you as did many others. You put me in touch with myself, a part I am still exploring and still unsure of sharing. I’ll always miss you and now I don’t have to worry about you any more. I should be glad about that. But I can’t say Good Bye, your comments will here remain as long as this blog continues.
