Glenn,

I am so sorry I wasn't able to be at your dad's funeral. You were in my thoughts. I can still remember your dad in that ski boat towing us around the lake. Please give your mom my heartfelt sympathy. We all need to get together sometime soon.

Dear Mrs. Clara and Family, I was very saddened to hear regarding Mr. Bennie. He was such a wonderful man and a very dear friend to my Dad, Guyton Nunnally. Growing up, it was always a treat to visit Sears while they were working. I have very fond memories of Mr. Bennie who was always so good to me. He would stop his busy day to talk to me and would take me through the warehouse and we would stand on the dock to wait for my Dad. Mr. Bennie was a very special man and will be remembered always. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
