Upshaw and I have been friends for a long long time. Besides graduating the same year we served as sponsors for the 50th class reunion.

Ernie and I always enjoyed seeing him any time, anywhere. Usually in Athens at UGA meetings, or better, at UGA football games. He will be missed by many. My sympathy to all the family.

Upshaw had many credits for a life well lived, but he had hero status with me as a P-47 pilot in World War Two. God bless him.

I was sorry to hear of Mr. Bentley's passing. I have known him all my life. My father(J B Warren) and Mr. Bentley were very good friends. They both had connections with Hanna Bat Company. My father was the accountant there. My father passed away 30 years ago. Mr. Bentley was more like a father to me than a lawyer. I loved him like a father. I talked to him about a month ago to tell him of my brother's passing (Steve Warren). He has known both of us since we were kids. Mr. Bentley was a great man and will be missed by me and many other people.

August 16, 2013
Mr. Bentley was indeed one of a kind. His smile, his laughter were all infectious to those who knew him. I will be forever grateful for the time I had him in my life.
