Grandma, you were the sweetest and kindest person anyone could ever meet. I am so proud to have been part of your family and your life. You were loved by so many. There was not a mean bone in your body. You were a godly woman and a wonderful example of what a wife and mother should be. Thank you for allowing me to remain part of your family. I will always love you and cherish the memories we shared. Fly high grandma. I know you already have the answers I am looking for in my favorite song mercy me " I can only imagine". You know the answers grandma. I will see you again one day when I pass from this earth. RIP granny Benton. I love you.
