May the God of all comfort give you peace during this difficult time. 1 Peter 4:7.
I didn't know Mr. Bender personally, but I have loved getting to know what a wonderful and talented man he was through his daughter/my dear friend Marilyn Middleton. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
Martha, we were so sorry to hear of Dean's passing. You were good friends at the Tip O Texas resort. Good Thanksgiving diners at your house with the Ferlings and MacAdoos. We will miss him and have good memories of those good times together.
