My condolences to the family of Jane Markey. My prayers are with you at this difficult time. I remember how much she enjoyed her students at Fenger and also her part time job at Neiman Marcus in the children's department. I have fond memories of her helping me find clothes for my three young children.

My condolences ED. It appears your mother lived a full life, similar to Donna. May she rest in peace.
