Honoring Mr. Greg Bennett – Kitty Hawk, NC 9-25-2010

A year ago, the Outer Banks community lost someone very dear to all our hearts, Greg Bennett, a man who will always be remembered for his hilarious antics and warm charm. This past Saturday, the Bennett family and friends held a paddle out ceremony honoring him at Bennett St. in Kitty Hawk, NC.

Before those with surf boards headed out to the water, we all had a moment of silence and thought of our favorite Mr. Greg memories, which from what I heard were mostly silly times filled with lots of laughter. Once in the water, flowers and ashes were spread after the surfers joined in a prayer circle and held hands. Lots of love goes out to the entire Bennett family, and may Mr. Greg’s warm spirit continue to live on through his memory.

We will always remember Greg, Jill, Dylan and Alexa and the great times we had when they visited us in Australia.

The tribute to Greg looked amazing.
