Rae Jeanne, Bill, Ben and I are so sorry for your loss. Sally was a wonderful lady and cousin. She had a beautiful voice as well. I'm sure that she is singing with my mom, her dad and the rest of the Bennett family! She will be missed.

Nana,

Words can not express the happiness and joy that I feel when I think of you and Papa together again on the other side of the Jordan. True love knows no bounds and the grace and love of our heavenly Father has undoubtedly given you both your reward.
Selfishly, I miss you both. I miss your smiles and I miss your strength. I miss your kisses and I miss your hugs. I miss being the little boy that looked up to you so much.
But gaw-lee did you bless me with an amazing family. You blessed me with a great mother, with great aunts and uncles, and more than a lifetime of memories.
My hope is that you know how much I love you and how grateful I am that you were my grandparents. I say this to you as a couple because I know that’s how you’d have it.
I love you both. My heart will cary your memories forever - until we’re together again.
Your Grandson,
Joshua

I will always remember Aunt Sally for her infectious laugh! Her deep love for her family was apparent in each and every conversation. She will be greatly missed by many.

Thank you for all the great memories growing up, thank you for all the times in the pond, the frozen ice cream mashed potatoes, the fairs we went to, the boat ride you took me on, thank you for loving me so, and thank you for all the fun casino trips, and Nana I’m so glad you got to meet my Paul. I love you Nana and Papa. Glad you two are free and happy with our Lord and that you two are together. I feel you every day. 🖤
