So very sorry to hear of the loss of Jan-Lyn. For years at the Olde Post Grille, we knew we were going to have great day when Jan-Lyn was working. Younger staff members looked up to her both professionally and personally. She was loved by all who knew her.

I recall one evening during a Make-A=Wish Fundraiser when she advised me she would have to go home as the flashing light necklaces we had given out were disturbing her. I told her to give me a few minutes and i would have everyone turn their lights from flashing to a steady glow, which we did in short order. She couldn't believe that 100 people had adjusted their light to accommodate her. I told her that i simply told them that Jan-Lyn needs us to do this so she can enjoy her evening.

God bless Jan-Lyn! The O'Neill Family
