    Aunt Thelma, Sherry, Stephanine, Jeremy, Cooper, Katie and Peyton:

    I just wanted to let you know deep saddened Mom and Dad are that they were unable to come to pay their respects to Uncle Bennie. Their health, as you know, did not allow that to happen. I was privileged in being able to come on their behalf. However, If I had to I would have came by myself.

    Love you all with all my heart,
