Paul Bennett What a wonderful man he accepted me into his family 27 years ago a treated me the same way as the first day he met me. He was truly a great and peaceful man. That I shall miss him dearly. Always so understanding and giving. May I live my life to be half the man he was honest and helpful and fair.
