Lane Bryant Shootings memorial fund

A comment received yesterday on my post about the Lane Bryant shootings in Tinley Park:

Charming Shoppes, which owns Lane Bryant, Catherines, Fashion Bug and
Petite Sophisticate, has established a memorial fund for the families of the
incredible women who lost their lives.

The Lane Bryant Tinley Park Memorial Fund
Harris Bank
19500 S. Harlem Avenue
Frankfort, IL 60423
ATTN: Sandy Kozin

All of the funds collected will be distributed equally among the five victims'
families. As a manager of one of Lane Bryant's "sister" stores, I cannot tell you
how many times I have thought over the last 10 days, "this could have happened
to us." My hope is that they find the monster who committed this unspeakable
crime as quickly as possible, and that he receives the punishment he deserves.
Rest in peace, ladies.

Hi...I live one mile from the Tinley Park Lane Bryant. I personally knew the manager, Rhoda. I'd like to invite you over to my blog for a visit and to read my post about the massacre. I, too, have a blog that focuses on the plus size woman and hope you'll come by for a visit.
