I am so sorry to hear of Francisca's passing. I knew Francisca from her cutting my hair a V's in Carlsbad. While she was a true professional who always gave me a great haircut she was an even better person. I was always impressed by her kindness and warmth and really enjoyed my visits. Sometimes I would arrive after a bad day at work but always left relaxed and with a smile because of her bright and positive attitude. So once again, I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish you peace. Mike O'Donnell

Deal Galo Family, I would like to extend my dearest and most sincere condolences. I met Francis at Hair Designers and she cut my hair every 2 weeks from 2003 until 2013. She was the best hairstylist and the nicest person I ever met. She would always listen to my complaints about work, home and friends and not once did she ever complain about anything, she would just hear me out and offer advice that would always resolve my problems. She would offer to come in on her day off if I needed an emergency haircut and was always so patient and caring. I can't imagine what you are going through at these moments, but please know that I share your pain and will deeply miss Francis. I was truly blessed to have known such a beautiful person and I will always remember her. My heart and prayers are with you...

Dear Family, My dearest condolences. I do not know the family, but knew Francisca from V's Barbershop. I have been going there for just over 2 years and was seeing Francisca the entire time. I got to know her somewhat for seeing her once a month during that time - and I remember her getting so excited for me as I talked about getting married almost 2 years ago now. She would always ask how I was doing during the "planning" period.. knowing I was a wreck. And she even came in on Sunday (her day off) to give me a haircut and "the works"just so that I would look my best. She was a very kind soul and deeply cared about others. I am so grateful to have known her for the short time I did. God Bless You Francisca and your dear family. :'( Sincerely, Zarko Dimitrievski
