Who was Morgan Jayne?

Morgan Jayne Makowecki, 18 year old daughter of Fred Makowecki of Drumheller, Alberta, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 4, 2006 of a sudden liver failure, after a short illness.

Valerie Nelson had been instrumental in the private adoption of Morgan as an infant, and had kept in contact with the Makowecki family until a few years ago. Upon the passing of Morgan, Fred searched for and found Valarie, now director of Familias Saludable (Healthy Families) on the island of Roatan, Honduras. She has made a lifetime commitment in working to help save babies whose mothers are HIV positive or have AIDS. They have never had a name for the project, but when hearing of Morgan Jayne’s passing, knew it was to be named after her.

When she (Morgan Jayne) went to school we jokingly called her the lawyer… When someone was in need if she was there… there was an injustice.
