Bena was the first person to reach out to me when I moved in the neighborhood and if you need a ride somewhere or anything else she always glad to help. Now that I have moved from the neighborhood not sure if I will find a neighbor like her but I know she will have a job in Heaven helping all of God's angels out in someway

The first time I met Bena we both had a baby on our hips! I hadn’t lived in the neighborhood long and was so glad to have met a lifelong friend! Through all the ups and downs of life nothing came between our friendship! No one could have a better friend than Bena, except Jesus! I miss her so much but know I’ll see her again!
