None of the kids had clothes appropriate for a funeral. Scholar Woman was indisposed, but Jumper Girl, La Novia, and I went to the mall. We hit Banana Republic first. Marlin, the sales assistant, was incredibly helpful. JG & LN each found appropriate clothes, and Marlin picked out a selection for Scholar Woman to try out at home. We were all a bit stressed out. I think if Marlin hadn't helped, there would have been cross words. Thank you, Marlin for your advice and kindness.
