    Sending prayers for God’s presence and peace for Rhett’s family and friends. I met Rhett through working together at Thomas & Howard. I learned a lot from him that was work related but he also shared life experiences and stories making him a true friend. His love for his family, friends and The Clemson Tigers was always front and center. I know he is at peace reunited with the love of his life Edna. RIP my friend, wearing our colors proudly today,  until we meet again.

    Ryan, Marie, and families:    Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in coming weeks and months.  I (Cecil) am actually related to you on both the Connelly and Fellers sides. Your Grandmother (Cora) was my great Aunt Thompsia Connelly Summers’ daughter. She married my great uncle Ryan Fellers who was my granddaddy’s brother.  I have many memories of visiting Aunt Thompsia, Uncle Ryan and Aunt Cora, and your dad when I was growing up.

    Marie, Ryan, and families,  

    So sad to hear of your Daddy's passing.  He and I had a few moments to  talk in the recent past which I treasure. He loved you all so muc. He spoke of Mrs Edna Marie and his brother Heyward. He showed me Heyward's ring which he wore on his neck.  He missed them both very much.  What a blessing for him to be reunited with them!  He's in good company.  God bless you all.
