In a heart-wrenching call to Tasmania Talks this morning, Launceston resident Rick bravely reaches out to Brian Carlton for advice on carrying out his late wife's wishes.

With beautiful long hair, Rick's wife had been wanting to make the chop, and donate her locks to charity to be made into wigs. Rick had managed to talk his wife out of cutting it off for over 12 months as he loved her long hair too much to see it go.

Hear Rick share the heartbreaking story of his wife's unexpected death, and his hopes to see her hair made into four or five wigs.
