Mr. Bennett was such a handsome and wonderful man. When I was a girl growing up next to his family I always thought he looked like Clark Gable. My favoite quote of his was "This is Betty's world, I just live in it" We should all be lucky enough to have a husband, a father, and a friend like him. We adored him and we will miss him.
