  1. On behalf of the Bigliere and Gode family we would like to offer our deepest sympathy for the loss of your mom, Edee. My mother, Carol worked for Edee for many years as a stylist and occasionally I worked for her during the Sidewalk Sale in the Summer at Wig Towne. And, although this time seems so long ago, we can look back and remember all the laughs we shared together. Count on our prayers. Our Lord is never outdone in mercy and love. May you find peace and comfort during this difficult time through the comfort of friends and family. God bless you. Barbara and family
