Benora and I were neighbors for over thirty years. After moving from Wilhoit Street we continued to stay in touch. She kept my phone number on her PM Alarms account even after I moved. She said she wanted to know I would be there if she needed me when Gail and Alvin were out of town.

My prayers go out to Evelyn (her cousin) during this time of sorrow. Benora shared a lot of memories with me of how much she loved you. Benora got her wish which was to stay in her home until the end.
Rest in peace Benora, I will cherish the memories we shared during the time we were neighbors.
