Adra Libby was my first repeat client of 15 years. I was her Esthetician. We were friends, I loved and enjoyed her conversations we always shared stories every visit. I’m sorry for the families loss. She will be missed dearly by many she is unforgettable. She loved cats, the color pink, everything must have been a certain way. She loved her family and only wanted the best for them. I always tried to keep in touch because I knew they weren’t close. I won’t forget that little clasp on her necklace I had to help with. Her laugh and smile. Wish she was still here.
