  1. It’s hard to believe. Lydia and I first met when she worked at Miller’s on Charles Street and then continued our journey at Roxie’s Rack. We became friends and business partner venturing into a new journey on Read Street’s Tiny Tailor Shop. It’s hard for me to believe Lydia is gone.

    The Lydia I know was very health conscious with her nuts, salads, and bottles and bottles of water. We spent long nights burning the oil way beyond midnight in that tiny shop.

    My son Raphael was just 4. A robust spirited woman, she was a gentle lamb when it came to children.

    Years later, Lydia was still Lydia, health conscious, in one of my last telephone conversations, we laughed and talked about eating healthy. She sent me an article.

    Lydia was the same yesterday, today and I am sure she will remain forever in our hearts. Once you met her, you’d never forget her kind, generous, caring, motherly spirit.

    My condolences to Dino, her siblings, family and extended Read Street customers and family. Surely Lydia will be missed.

    “Miss Lydia” was the Queen Mother of Read Street. The Tiny Tailor shop was her court. Some came for the sewing…others came for her stern earthy counsel, encouragement and tough love. Rest in Peace Lydia! I am among many young women, blessed by your wise friendship.

    “The Matrix” movies had the Oracle. Read street had Ms. Lydia, The Tiny Tailor. You will be missed, Ms. Lydia.
