    I still cannot believe that members of this very beautiful family are gone. I know this is 2021 and Pastor Whiteside passed in 2015, but when good people leave us here on Earth, you miss them even more because you realize how much even more special they were to you after they have passed. Pastor Whiteside and his beautiful God blessed Wife, Betty Whiteside were two of the greatest people I have ever met in my life. They took me into their beautiful home in Cumberland Ridge and welcomed me like family. Their beautiful daughter, Yvette was my forever friend and sister in Christ. I loved this family for everything the did for me. In life, God gives us people who serve to help us through our hard times and struggles. I can certainly say that Pastor Whiteside and Mama Betty were servants and angels of God. They were two of the most charitable people in the world. Always giving and praying for people. I will miss them forever. Apostle Paul said to be absent from this world is to be present with the Lord, and there is no doubt in my mind that Pastor Whiteside, Mama Betty and Yvette are absolutely basking in the true presence of the Lord. I will miss these wonderful people forever, but I am so grateful that God allowed me to know and love them. What a blessing they were in my life. I just wanted to stop by and share my admiration for Pastor Whiteside, his God blessed wife, Mama Betty, and my best friend and sister Yvette, they were remarkable messengers for the true and loving God. May God bless the Whiteside family.
