  • Just a quick thank you to Holden Beach folks for your kindness all these years to my dad, Chief Raymond Simpson and my step mom Ms. Betty Simpson and my brother Randy and I. We all love and miss Holden Beach so much as our feet are still firmly planted in the sand 🙂 We’ll miss the times there and especially the great Holden Beach people; who are the very best anywhere. Dad lived a very full and busy life with Betty at Holden Beach. Blessings to you all and we ALL miss Holden Beach! Mitch Simpson
