    Many souls have crossed my life’s path, but Bennie’s was one of the most special. Her genuine kindness, caring nature, and gentle love touched my heart when I was young, and has stayed with me throughout my life. God has blessed me in knowing Bennie – she’ll always be loved, appreciated, and occupy a cherished place in my heart. My prayers for God’s Love and Comfort are with her wonderful family as they say their good-byes to this Beautiful Lady.
