I cannot believe that this is my second tribute to someone who has gone to soon.  My assistant/friend Miss Belinda Keatts passed away today--this afternoon.  Several weeks ago she suffered a major stroke and just never recovered.  She was only 31--31 the number just boggles my mind

A young vibrant, young lady who recently graduated college with an English major--she was a phenomenal writer, but all the while her heart was with makeup.   As an assistant she worked so hard for me--and she shared some of my most memorable days.  She would get me to go out to an event when I was just content sitting on my sofa at home. She knew when folks were getting on my last nerve and would woooo-saaaa with me lol.  We'd sit for hours and just talk about -well- everything and have major jokes when we did.   The last thing she had done for me was help with the Cotton Show--We worked crazy hours together and to make it even more perfect she had crazy hours like I did, so if she emailed me at 3 am I was there to answer and vis-versa lol.  She wasn't just an assistant she was a wonderful person and a friend.

To say this is a big shock and a great loss is really an understatement.  What I will say is she was definitely loved, had tremendous family,  a big ole fabulous head of hair, a beaming smile and was just a funny bubbly person
