    I am so sorry to learn of Jire’s passing. I was just thinking of her and Fay, my dear friend of many years. She lived a full and interesting life. She was one of the most memorable and fascinating people I ever met. My daughter was so delighted that she chose to sell The Shanty Too to her as Wendy had fond memories of shopping there since she was a girl. Condolences to all of Jire’s family. She is now together with her beloved daughter Fay.
