    My heart is broken with the loss of this sweet, lovable and unpredictable young man. He always had that smile that made you love him.

    My heart breaks for his entire family, including the ones that were not blood related, as well as, his sweet girlfriend.I watched him grow up with Patty, Dantzler, Read and the entire Lewin family.

    I love you Santee.

    Santee first touched my heart when he was a Tiger Cub in Cub Scouts. His white blond hair and energy reminded me of my son. When he was older, I loved to watch Santee play soccer. In more recent years our paths crossed more infrequently. Every once in a while, I would see him in a car passing by mine and if he saw me, he would smile that gorgeous smile and wave enthusiastically making sure I saw him and I would smile and wave back just as enthusiastically.
    I have had the privilege of loving and praying for Santee even from a distance.

    I never had the privilege of meeting Santee, but I did however have the honor of meeting and caring for is grandma, Mrs. Frances Rabon and the one thing I know about Santee is that his grandma loved him dearly, so I know without a doubt what wonderful person he had to have been! My heart is broken for his family and friends and you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    I had the privilege of teaching Santee PE at Beaufort Academy. He was the sweetest guy with the most beautiful smile. Coach Crosby and I enjoyed watching his insane soccer skills on the field. He was a few years older than my son and he chose my son to partner up with for Math Buddies, when my son was only in 3rd grade. My son was so proud to get Santee as his buddy. He would exclaim how nice Santee was to him and a great helper, he especially loved when one day Santee brought him a hershey kiss. I will never forget Santee and his warm smile!!!!!
