Auntie, you were my father's love. I was your favorite niece. I am so thankful we spent time together. I will all ways remember your smile, and the love you had for our family.
Love you Barbara Powell and Family.
To the Family of my dearest friend and classmate: May the comfort of the Holy Spirit keep you strong during the loss of your loved one. I will miss her midnight and early morning phone calls, our sharing of old and new memories, praying for each other in times of crisis, thanking God for the good times, our many blessings and all the memories we shared through the years. Be strong for each other and comfort each other for together there is strength.
Love and deepest sympathy,

Dear Love ones,
I can say, “ there is no sorrow, no pain, no torturous grief, which comes flooding through me even as I write, as the death of a parent.” Because I also have felt deep grief over the loss of my mother. This Bible text has helped me to cope with my grief.
God promises: “I will change their mourning into exultation, and I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief.” “‘Hold back your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, ‘and they will certainly return from the land of the enemy [death].’”—Jeremiah 31:13-17. We can look forward to that day. Miss Bennie will be dearly missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.
I am very sorry for your loss. Miss Bennie will be missed by all that loved her. No words can ease the pain you feel now. But you can be sure that you are not alone. The Bible tells us that God cares about what you are feeling. In 1 Peter 5:7 it says "While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." May you find solace in your time of sorrow
My condolences to Mrs. Bennie’s family in this time of sorrow. Ecclesiastes 3:12 says that there is nothing better … than to rejoice and to do good during one’s life, so celebrate a life well lived: and Isaiah 66:13 informs us that that” As a mother comforts her son, Almighty God will keep comforting you.
Your mom was a very special lady and loved by everyone who knew her. Please know that we share in your grief and extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Love Angela Danielle Richard
Expressing sincere sympathy to you and your family. May the sorrow that you feel in your hearts be lightened by the love that surrounds you. Praying God's comfort and strength upon you.
Family, what can I say at a time like this? Bennie was an incredible woman. Often words evade us when we think that someone we love have fallen asleep in the Lord. The words that come to my mind are: 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
51. Behold, I shew you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.
52. In a moment, in the twinkling of any eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
One year Bennie and I met me in Idabel, and I had my oldest granddaughter with me, which is Bennie great neice., and when she and Jimmie was leaving to go back to Texarkana, some kind of way she and I discovery we had the wrong child. I told Bennie California would have been a long way to drive to exchange them. We both laugh about it. She and I did keep in touch. Will miss her.
