celebrating life

As some of you may know, Guy Mascolo passed away yesterday, after suffering a heart attack in Dallas.  Guy was the co-founder of Toni & Guy (he founded it in 1963 with his brother Toni).  Guy was only 65 years old – a very young age to pass.

My friend Andy was the one who told me the news – Andy works at TIGI.  Andy told me that today at noon, everyone at TIGI and all the Toni & Guy salons across the world, were going to release balloons into the air in Guy’s honor.  I think that’s absolutely brilliant.  Of course many will be mourning his death, but a celebration of life is something that Guy would prefer.

It got me thinking – when I pass, I think I want balloons released at my funeral.  Pink balloons would be nice – alllll shades of pink.

hot pink,
pastel pink,
salmon pink,
coral pink,
deep pink,
lipstick pink,
baby pink…

you get it.  So, friends and family – I’m sure it’s quite far away…but when that day comes, please release balloons.  🙂
