Wanda,
My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your father. He was a really nice and caring man with a good sense of humor. He always treated me and others so kindly when we stayed at your house before Girl Scout meetings (a long time ago!). However, your dad’s kindness was never forgotten after all those years. May the peace of the Lord and cherished memories be with you and your entire family.

Daddy (Bob Bennington) always spoke very highly of “Junior”. Daddy and “Junior” were cousins and would run into each other from time to time. I’m sure they will be sharing all kinds of stories, now.
