During a very difficult period in my life the Deen family gave me hope and the opportunity to work to build a brighter future for my family and me. 

I assumed that all of my complaints about the workplace environment were getting to Paula Deen, but I learned during this matter that this was not the case.   The Paula Deen I have known for more than 8 years, is a woman of compassion and kindness and will never tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind toward anyone. 

I now know that the workplace environment issues that I raised are being reviewed and will in the future no longer be at issue. 

I wish Ms. Deen and her family all the best in all of their future endeavors and I am very pleased that this matter has been now been resolved and can now be put behind us.
