Jann's Sister

The employee you found so laughable was my sister. Jann was more than "the drunk chick." You weren't aware that she was not only the hostess, she was the front of the house manager for almost two decades. She was a single mother who worked split shifts six days and nights a week under often difficult conditions. She couldn't leave work behind at the end of the day, though, because the boss was also her partner. Still laughing?

When Jann was going through chemo for leukemia, customers didn't have a clue. She didn't show her pain or her problems that way. She later beat breast cancer after surgery and radiation. Hilarious, huh?

Overcoming alcoholism proved harder. Her obituary is at It doesn't quite convey how bright, witty and beloved she was. She died a month before your post appears to have been published. At least she didn't have to learn of your cruel words, or know that you mockingly memorialized her sad struggle forever on the internet. Funny, right?

I hope in future you think twice before laughing at or publicly shaming anyone else. No joke.

You're right - I apologize. I removed that part from the entry.
