The death of my beloved husband, Brett, shook me deeply in my heart. I lost my true soul mate; with each other we were able to live and love together for 10 blessed years. In the hours and days of pain and emptiness that followed, I was calmed in my darkest moments by Brett’s voice.
My faith in the Lord also encourages me to carry on; adversity has led to perseverance. I am deeply reassured by everyone who interrupted their daily routine Thursday to come together in a celebration of Brett’s life at the Vineyard. I thank each of you who prayed for me and encouraged me.
Many have asked if The Southsider Voice will continue. The answer that was evident with last week’s publication is “yes,” yes,” and “yes.”
There are not enough words to express my determination to carry on.
The Southsider Voice is my passion; I call it a mission. Aside from family, there is no other calling that I enjoy more than putting together this “good news” publication. We will continue to be “the voice” of the Southside for many years to come.
Through the strong support of our wonderful advertisers, we will continue to present you, our readers, with the positive accomplishments of individual Southsiders and groups. We will continue our popular news, sports, school and feature stories, columns, CarNutz, Reminiscing, crossword puzzles, CryptoQuips and more.
Our advertisers already have provided us with one of the strongest first quarters in our short history. To the businesses and individuals who enable us to produce The Southsider Voice each week. I am indeed grateful for your support now and in the future.
Our staff is more determined than ever to publish The Southsider Voice. We will continue to be the conduit for businesses to reach out to our readers with valued products and services.
I can assure you that we are stronger, more unified with our present and future advertisers and more appreciative of our dear readers than ever before.
