Three years ago, I told Terry Brundige I would compliment him with a letter to the editor in The Leader-Herald. It didn't happen; I dragged my feet. Now, I owe him a big "thank you."
If you do not know who I am writing about, he is the man that turned the lights on in the dark empty stores starting at West Fulton Street and continued around the corner going down South Main Street.
I'm showcasing the man who cleaned the windows and filled the storefronts with attractive Victorian furniture and other items.
I am highlighting the man who woke up what used to be South Main Street's busiest section.
At this time of year, this man's windows were tastefully decorated to welcome the big holiday season.
In my opinion, those windows will be dark and empty, the lights will be out again and who knows for how long.
I'm thanking Terry for keeping those lights on for about five years, proving that South Main Street has hope.
Terry brought light to a dark subject.
