All best wishes to retiring barber

I was sorry to read of the closure of Tony’s barber shop.
I’ve been having my hair cut there for 42 years – I first went there just before Suleyman started.
Apart from being an excellent hairdresser, Suleyman cut your hair as you wanted it and not how he felt it should be! And he didn’t feel it necessary to talk to you if you weren’t in the mood.
Often, we only exchanged two words. He would say “usual?” and I’d reply “please”. All best wishes for his retirement – and now I have to find someone as good!
