To The Family of Captain Hesby,
On behalf of the USS Bennington Association, please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one. Our thoughts & prayers go out to the entire family at this most difficult time. We "thank you" for the Captain's service to God & Country.
"Gone from us physically but as long as his memory remains in just one of us, he'll be remembered always."
In August of this year, in Bennington, Vermont, Captain Hesby shall be remembered. His name shall be read from a list of those who have gone before us to stand, "The Eternal Watch" and the actual Ships Bell will toll in his memory.
With My Deepest Sympathy,
Joseph L. Pires
