So sorry to just now learn that Bennie has passed to his better life reward, Heaven. We were distant cousins, via Cave Springs families; my parents were Guy and Nell Biggs -- Bennie worked with my Dad at JTL, my Mother (Nell Bilbrey) was related to the Sagely family. Bennie gave information on 82nd to my brother, Danny Joe, when they worked at JTL, prior to his enlistment.
Last time I was able to see Bennie and Carolyn you had just sold the place (were my other grandparents had lived) and were moving to Bella Vista. Blessings to you, rest in peace.
