    I’m so very very sorry. This happened so fast. I have been Jewels hairstylist and friend for over 25 years. Every six weeks for that many years we had a date to do hair and talk about all the things. She watched my kids grow up and I watched hers. Jewell is the biggest personality, full of life, and truly loves her family her whole family. She always talked about her husband Keith, her kids, and grandkids with the biggest heart. I’m truly sorry for all of your loss and I will be praying for you.
