For the family of Tess Hansel. I am sure you will miss her so much as she was a special woman. I had the pleasure of being her hair dresser for several years at my salon . I always enjoyed the time I had with her. She had a sense of humor and always had kind words for everyone. I will never forget her.

To the family of Tess, What a sweet and kind woman she was! I worked with Tess at Cen Clear, and she was my friend! WE were coworkers who traveled through Clearfield and Centre county, and she always had stories of her family, and how much she loved each and everyone of you! I will always cherish the memories of her, and her stories! I pray for her family, for their loss, and I will always will remember my good friend! Rest in Peace Tess!
Love, Suzie Irwin
