HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The holidays are meant for everyone to come together, but for one Murrells Inlet family, a large part of their family is missing.
When Suzanne Embree's family moved to Murrells Inlet from New York a few years ago, she expected her son would grow up and she would grow old with her husband in their new home.
Together they've had a wonderful time here, until this past October.
Suzanne's husband, Tim, passed away from cancer, leaving their 5-year-old son, Aidan, without his father just weeks away from Christmas.
That's when Suzanne called Santa to lift Aidan's spirits as high as when Aidan's late father lifted him up on his shoulders.
Santa did that and provided Aidan with a memory he'll never forget.
