The first time I was ever at the Benken home ,I was made to feel like one of the family immediatly ……and especuially by Mrs. Benken. She was indeed a true lady who loved her children , husband and church .
May she rest in peace .
I know her Havenly Father welcomes her with open arms .

Much love,
Annie Carroll
