Bennie James was the most sincere, caring person I've ever met. I've had the honor of taking care of her hair for 30+ years. She was not my client. She was my friend, my family, my mom. She loved me, and I loved her dearly.. She laughed with me. She listened to me. She guide me, she scolded me. She had the most contagious smile and her laugh; you had to laugh with her. I'll never forget that laugh.. She will forever be a big part of my past.,.and certainly my future. She helped thru many, many crazy times.. My heart is broke, my heart is heavy for her children, her grandchildren. whom she loved with all her heart.
She was beautiful inside.. And more outside. She taught me so many things, her kindness, her craziness.. her love, her genuine good heart... I will always have that with me
I Pray for her amazing kids...her grandkids to have Peace And comfort, Just knowing she is certainly an Angel now.
Thank you for sharing your Mama with me!!

The most loving caring person I think I've ever known. Her family was always first her smile was always the brightest and her greetings were always welcome. I will always remember her she has a small place in my heart. My heart goes out to the family for their loss. She's in God's hands now smiling down at all of her children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all.
