Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Even in your own struggles with this horrible disease, you were able to use your gift as a journalist down to your last moment to serve others. You are a saint!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, this is after the fact...to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I hope to catch up with you in heaven.You have had a great life and wonderful with words. May you witness God's continious blessings on your family while you watch on in spirit.

Very Respectfully,
Dr. Karlene Ferron

Re: “James Island sports a restaurant scene as quirky as its residents

Hannah, the Locklear's that Stephanie refers to was originally a standalone place in what’s now a bank near Publix — it's closed now.

Re: “James Island sports a restaurant scene as quirky as its residents

Restaurants who let soccer parents guzzle beer while their kids run around having fun = repeat customers and longevity on the island which it seems like many restaurants over here don't have.

Someone should let the author know Locklear's is still open, it is on the pier.

Re: “The South's intentional ignorance encourages groups like the Secessionist Party

The traitors were brought back into the fold, for better or worse, with a perpetual chip on their shoulder which has been passed down to morons with access to the internet.

Re: “James Island sports a restaurant scene as quirky as its residents

After taking 8 paragraphs blasting our James Island eateries and the people who live here, only the last paragraph praised Sean Mendes for his two restaurants. I appreciate the last paragraph and the rest is garbage, stay the hell downtown!

Re: “The South's intentional ignorance encourages groups like the Secessionist Party

Treason, you say? How many were convicted and executed for that crime in relation to the 1860 secession? Surely it must have been hundreds, or thousands?

Re: “How a FIG server survives on 2 a.m. sandwiches

For the granmommy who has spent many a night sleeping on your couch watching the silent sandwich caper unfold, this was especially poignant.

Re: “Online campaign raises money to buy Quintin Washington new equipment

Hire Quintin. Or post his videos and pay for the rights. His interviews are wonderful. Follow him. I love how Quintin continues to prove that it's not the camera but the person behind it. Quintin is a great journalist and Charleston is lucky to have him. I hope more will seek out his work.

Can't love this anymore. Thank you Dustin for your well written story about Q - and whoever pitch this story as a cover deserves free hugs forever!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

It's been four years since I left Charleston. This still broke open my chest like a cleaver.
Alison was my teacher, mentor, role model and friend. I spent a year living across the street from her. Whenever I would see her and Maybelle outside it brightened my day.
Thank you, Alison, for living extraordinarily and leaving us an immense legacy. You were one of my first heroes. Rest in power.

Yes, Cid. Assholes come from all walks of life. Treason supporters, however, are more niche.

Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

I first met Alison during the #FightForCofC movement. I've always swam against the tide, fought for what I believed in, worked in politics, etc. I originally went to USC as a cheerleader, and served in the US Navy. I still have that intense and stubborn pride to this day for both. I didn't have that for CofC when I moved back to Charleston to pursue a teaching degree... Until that movement... Until I met people like Alison. She had this glow about her. She exuded rays of positivity, and more. All of this even while battling this battle and battling another on the side. I am very saddened that we have lost such an amazing human being, but then again, I have a bit of happiness in knowing that the pain for her is gone. Rest in peace Alison! We'll see you again soon!
