“Mrs.Benton, I remember how you prayed for me when I was a child, when I was sick. You took me and my sisters & the neighborhood kids to church in your 1956 chevy station wagon. I really miss you, I know you are with the LORD now, GOD works in mysterious ways, we don't understand why things turn out the way they do,THANK YOU,Mrs.Benton ! tony ” - tonyduran@aol.com
