Letter from the Editor: “Sistas”

By Leslie Moore

There’s a restaurant in a rural part of Georgetown County, about halfway between Georgetown and Hemmingway, which serves huge helpings of delicious home-cooked, southern food. You really have to know where it is to eat there. They don’t advertise, nor do they have a sign. It’s in the middle of nowhere. But, it’s packed every Sunday after church with people who know where to find a good meal. This was one of my friend Sis Kelly’s favorite restaurants. We would go there on the occasional Sunday and eat while visiting with the clientele and the owner, most of whom had known her for years and many of whom were conservative-minded politicians doing a little handshaking while everyone was eating. Sis knew all of the politicians, as she was very active in her party. Hugs and well-wishes were shared over many a glass of delicious sweet tea. But, she’d always manage to tell them, in her forthright way, that she completely disagreed with their views. They all loved her anyway. I loved her, too. And, I know I’m a better person for having known her.

If friends were flowers, I’d pick you.
