“A friend just posted this on FB

“Rest in Peace sweet Diego D’Ambrosio. He was so much more than a barber, he was the Italian grandfather of Dupont Circle.

Last haircut before we moved he told me to send him an autographed photo of me and he’d hang it. What an honor that would have been, but I didn’t, figuring he couldn’t be serious.

I just saw him last week. I snapped that picture from across the street of him getting in a taxi after a long day of work, he was so frail, something told me to take the picture as I may never see him alive again. Can’t really see him in the pic, except for his suit pant legs, worked in a suit and tie all day until the last week of his life.

How many people get champagne gift baskets on Christmas from their barber?
I’m heartbroken, more words escape me. Reunited with his love”
