I would like to dedicate this, the 10th Anniversary Issue of GO Magazine, to the memory of my beautiful, brilliant and inspiring mother Samene Webber Lesser, who passed away on January 21, 2012 from complications of pancreatic cancer.
A lifelong champion of the underdog and proponent of an array of progressive causes, Mom was GO’s most avid fan as well as its most stalwart supporter—in every sense.
Mom, on behalf of our staff members, volunteers, interns, advertisers, a few million readers and all those whose lives GO has touched, I thank you. Without your love and encouragement GO never would have made it out of the gate, much less thrived.
You’ll never know the profound impact you made on this very special community.
I love you.
