To the family of Mae Bennett. It is with a heavy heart that as I mourn the passing of the woman that I considered my second mother. I enjoyed all the times that I spent at her home in my younger years, which was a lot. I don't think it was by luck that our paths crossed. Your laughter, your teasing, your guidance was one of God's gift designed especially for me. I love you Mrs. Bennett. Rest in Peace. Charles Ragland
