To the Bennett family - we express our deep condolences at the loss of your wife/mother/grandmother/friend.  Those of us who knew her know that she was a straight shooter, lived her life on her own terms, adored her family and loved the home that she and Jack built with their own hands.  Her life was undoubtedly cut too short, but she had a great one that was fulfilled in every way that counts. May the peace of God and his angels carry you through your time of grief.
