So very sorry for your loss. Mr. Bennett was a wonderful man. I have many fond memories of him when I was a cadet teacher in his class at Bluffton in 1984. May you feel the strong arms of our Heavenly Father during this time.

Dear Carol, Brandon, and Brett, I am deeply saddened by the loss of Jon. I wasn't aware that he had been ill. You have my deepest sympathy, and please know that I am praying for all of you during this difficult time. Boys, your Dad was extremely proud of both of you!! Jon hired me for my first teaching job, and I will always be grateful to him for that!
