    “In loving memory of Bennett Thomas Todd II, You will always be in my heart. Thank you for all the years we have shared together and been friends. I will always treasure our memories together and the good times we shared. Each night the accent lights light up my trees I think of you and you setting them up as a Christmas gift one year. We always enjoyed your visits. I’m sorry I didn’t get to Holden or Sunset Beach before to enjoy retirement with you. It was God’s Will, but I’ll see you soon. :)”

    I’m sorry to hear that another of my SC cousins has passed away. Condolences to his family, sister Patty and brother Monty. We grew up many miles apart but always remember the times we spent visiting our Grandmother Lewis and trips to the Myrtle Beach, the hospitality of Aunt Beenie and Uncle Bennet and time spent with out cousins.
