Recently my family went to visit TJ's bench at the Pismo Beach pier and found that the bench was removed. The city informed them that the pier is being renovated and all the benches had to be removed.
We have the option of keeping a bench at the same location on the pier (2nd diamond facing north/west) but of course there is a fee of $5,000 to replace it with a new one. It will be made of cement this time and will still have a back to lean on.
For me, this bench serves as a place to go and remember him....not at a tombstone in a graveyard but a gorgeous ocean with a beautiful view to remember a truly beautiful soul.
If you would like to contribute towards the new bench, it would be so wonderful. If any funds received exceed this goal, Tom and Brenda would like to donate those funds to the Hume Lake Christian Camp where TJ was working at the time of his passing.
Thank you everyone! And don't forget to leave a comment/message!
