    Please accept my condolences on behalf of the Elaine Benton Davis family. I am sorry for your loss and for the passing of yet another extended family member of my mother’s generation. I regret that we have not had much contact with our extended Benton family for quite some time, but I do have some memories from when I was much younger and mother was still alive. I pray that God will grant you many wonderful memories to guide you through this time.
