I worked at LGO and the Luggage Room for over five years. That’s the longest job I’ve ever held in my life. I made some incredible friendships through LGO; Kira, Vanessa, Rachel, Anna, Ramsey, Dennis, Heather, Allison, Ashley, Sandy, Maurisio, Chris Miller, Chris M2, Lisa, Erin, Francis, Jeannie Lee, Victoria, Amanda and John G. to name a few.
These fine people toasted me when I landed gigs, they cast me in their personal projects, they covered my shifts so I could go on vacation, they invited my husband and I to their Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, they threw me a shower when I was pregnant with Ambra, and best of all-they supported me and loved me.
A few weeks ago I received the above text from John Gentry. Months ago I made a dry erase community board for the Luggage Room. It had menu/policy changes, gigs and announcements, and my favorite; an inspiration section. Because all of us served tables and bar tended to supplement our bigger dreams. I always took care of the board. And, for a month it was left untouched in my absence. I left my job without saying good bye. And many lovely co-workers continue to reach out to me, to let me know that I am loved and missed. Thank you John. I teared up at this text.
