Benedict Family,
Very sorry to hear of your dear loss. My prayers are with all of you. Fina was a competitor in both bowling and softball, which I had the pleasure of doing both with her in our younger days. These times will always be remembered, just like Fina!!

God Bless You...

Fina was an amazing woman who always put her family first. She welcomed me lovingly as she did with all of her children's dear friends. I am proud to be an honorary Benedict because of being the only non-family member on one of the bowling teams. I recall how much light, love, and laughter surrounded Fina.
I pray for everyone during this sad transition. May peace be with you as you know Fina rests comfortably in the arms of our Lord. My deepest sympathies and love to all the family. Elizabeth Pendleton
