    Bill and Family,
    I'm so sorry to read of Val's passing. I have many memories of our friendship so many years ago in Waterloo.
    The last time we were together was at my daughter Teresa's wedding in February 1984.

    Dear Benson Family: I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be of comfort. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.
