The Benson Family is in our Prayers at Source of Peace Christian Church. Bro Benson was a kind spirited man and always made me feel welcome at Dean Hill Church. RIP my brother.

Abundant Joys. Abundant Life. Abundant Grace. Abundant Power. Abundant Supplies and now, Abundant Entrance. Mr. Willie Benson had such an abundant radiant character toward all members at the Dean Hill Missionary Baptist Church. A faithful member and very pleasant to be in his presence made him a successful candidate with membership in the Men's Sunday School Class, Seniors Ministry, Chief Usher and Easter Egg hider for the Children's Ministry. Never an idle worshipper but always happy and busy. It is fitting that we bid farewell to Mr. Willie by reading 2nd Peter 1:11. " For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. " Sleep on Sir. Enjoy you rest. You surely have earned it.

My granddaddy gave the BEST hugs and kisses! They were special kisses that ONLY he gave. He had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the world! I miss him so much and I would give anything for just one more hug and kiss. He was the absolute BEST!
