    David , Tommy and loved family members. This hurts I know! Nothing will fill that void. Just remember the sweet memories. Write them down so you can remember them later in life. I’m praying for you all. May GOD give you the peace that passes all understanding, praying protection for you all.

  5. Tommy, Little Dave and family,
    It is so sad to hear this.
    There is so much love for your Mom and Dad.
    Prayers to the family.

  6. My prayers and my love to your sweet families. Laverne and I thoroughly enjoyed our visits at the nursing home. I will really miss our talks and laughs. I loved Laverne but knowing she is with Jesus and not in pain is a blessing. God bless you all.

  7. Tommy,David, my thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. Aunt Vern is in no pain and with uncle Ben now. If I can help in anyway just let me know.

  8. Tommy, David and family, its really hard to believe Aunt Vern is gone. To me, she was timeless. She might have aged but she always seemed to be her young self at heart. I loved her very much. There were many times she was my rock. She will be in my heart forever. I’m so sorry you are feeling this pain but if I know anything, I know she is with our good lord and Uncle Ben, Mamaw, and Papaw. You will all be in my prayers.

  10. I’m so sorry for your loss. I pray the God of all comfort (Psalms 83:18 Jehovah & 2Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort your hearts while we await His Kingdom government that Jesus prayed for in the Lord’s Prayer. Revelation 21:3-5 promises us He will soon end death and make all things new.

    Tommy & Brenda, Little Dave & Sharon, & Family,
    When you lost your mother, everyone lost a mother. She loved everyone in the neighborhood and everyone she met. We will miss her dearly but we celebrate that she was a woman of God and is holding a place for you and us all in Heaven. In the days to come, let tears turn to smiles when thoughts of your mother come to you. We are holding you up in prayer.

  12. Baylor Scott & White Hospice

    Dear Benson Family,
    The Baylor Scott & White Hospice team is thinking of you during this time. Thank you for allowing us to care for Mrs. Benson and please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
