  1. My dear sister—gone.
    Safe trip.!

  2. Rosemary says:

    Dear Jane;
    may flights of angels sing thee to
    thy rest. Love, Rosemary McD.

  3. Mary Donovan says:

    George – I am keeping you and your family in my prayers.

  4. Dear George and Rosemary: I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your dear sister, Jane. I first met Jane as she assisted with the backstage production of “Streetcar Named Desire”; her kind words to me during that presentation gave one “nervous” actress great support. She was a gentle and lovely lady, and I am so glad to have known her. We pray that the wonderful memories you have of Jane will sustain you during this difficult time. James and I send our deepest sympathy to both of you as well as the Hayden family. James and Peggy Ryan

  5. Beautiful girl.
