An angel among us

To the Editor:

I would like to acknowledge an extraordinary lady who is the coordinator at GiGi’s Playhouse of McHenry County. Her name is Jean Boyle.

She shows so much compassion and dedication, and everything she says or does comes from the heart. The special-needs children who come to the playhouse are even drawn to her like iron to a magnet as they sense she is totally genuine. She is the backbone of GiGi’s Playhouse. She has been instrumental to so many programs at GiGi’s, such as teaching, exercise, activity, movement known as TEAM, Friday Friends, open play. Let’s not forget she runs bingo at noon every Wednesday at the McHenry V.F.W., just to name a few.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors and patrons who made our second Bunco Down benefit a huge success largely because of Jean’s idea and big impact. Finally, let’s not forget all of our dedicated volunteers who help make everything possible. Jean truly is an angel. Thank you for all you do. You inspire so many people.
