    I just read about Jan Magee and I am thinking she wrote that about herself because it seemed rather humble. The Jan Magee I met once was so much more than the short piece indicated. She might not remember me, but I have met her a few times and she was so sweet with a very bubbly personality that upon meeting her she made you feel like an old friend. I am sure she is very capable in her job as her list of accomplishments indicates, but as a real life person, she is a delight to know. Thanks for being YOU, Jan & keep up the good work.
