I can not think of Dad without the rest of my family. They are all one unit. Which is such a rare and beautiful love to witness. Let alone to be part of. I don't know how to narrow down a lifetime of love for my family. How should I honor a memory of a beautiful giving, genuine man who has prayed for me when I needed prayers? Provided me guidennce when I needed to be shown the way. How do I share with everyone the love I felt as a little girl looking up at a man who cared so deeply for his family? And yes, I truly am part of the Bennett family. God may not have given me Don and Marge as biological parents and Lisa, Donnie and Paul as siblings, but he certainly did give them to me as my family. I have been extremely blessed. I as many others, have so many fond Christmas Memories, times at "the boat", my wedding, my baby shower, Lisa's after Christmas-Christmas parties, gatherings at Lisa's. I have to tell the story of eating way to much at a New Year's celebration. I just had to eat ANOTHER stuffed mushroom (thanks Tom and Mada) when the final bite resulted in my belt literally breaking and popping off in mid air...Dad's infamous line was "Wow, that was quite a trick!" What do you do for an encore? Do you self destruct at midnight? We laughed so hard that tears rolled from our eyes. I was fortunate enough not to have split my pants at the seams! You taught me so much! I love you! I will miss you terribly! And I will remember you FOREVER. I know that God has another Angel looking out for me the way he did while you walked with us and held our hands here on earth. Thank you for being part of my life.
