"I love you Auntie!! I am so honored to be called your daughter. You always said that you were my second mom. Weather it was a personal issue, board room strategies, or celebrating my accomplishments; You were there for me. You filled my life with unconditional love. I hear your voice even now encouraging me to be strong and continue to take care of my mother. You are not suffering any more. You are still with me. To my family I send love, prayers, and condolences."

"We started out rocky but found a way to walk on smooth grounds. We spent a lot of time together laughing and debating and being mad at one another, but we persevered those storms and got stronger together. Playing poker will never be the same without you!!! Having you in my life gave it so much more meaning and you inspired me to be a greater form of myself. The last days I spent with you were indeed bittersweet. Being with you at that time afforded me the opportunity for you to really open up about who you really were, and I thank you for letting me in. I will hold those conversations in my heart forever. Go on and get your rest and know that you will be greatly missed. Vince and Junior, you guys have my heartfelt condolences."

Richard McNeil from Springfield, IL

"Loving MemoryI write with a tearful eye and heavy heart as my Sister/Sister Mama received her wings and transited on 9.15.22.Sis you are now in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ along with Mama, Mary, and Ed; Sis, I thank you so very much for the love, teachings, experiences, and pairables. Mrs. Benton during my remaining time on earth I’ll forever miss your presence, voice, and “beatdown” in cards.Although your physical presence no longer here, the warmth from the sun, light breeze of the wind, rainbow in the sky, or brisk chill in air serves as a reminder you are still with us.“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 Loving you always, your baby Sister!Sunrose 2.7.66 Sunset 9.15.22"
