To Mrs. Cager's family and personal friends: you have my sincere and heartfelt condolences. She was my 5th grade teacher at Valena C. Jones Elementary school in 1982 and also taught my older brother in 1976. I remember her as one of the best teachers I've ever had. She sincerely cared about her students' education and expected greatness from all of us. Her influence helped establish the foundation of approach to learning and helped me to become the attorney that I am today.

I pray that the Lord keeps and comforts all of you during this time of loss. May she rest in peace because her living was not in vain.
- Angelique Dorsey White and Darrell Dorsey, Sr.
