Sending our love and sympathy to Mrs Bene’s Family. Your Mother/Grandmother was a very special lady. What I remember most about her was the interest she showed in talking about just what was going on in your life and your children’s lives. She would always light up when sharing her times with her family whom she loved dearly. The world was a better place having had her in it. God Bless all of you and may your memories sustain you. 🙏
