Not sure what to say?

I had the opportunity to get to know Walter when selling his ranch. He was a real gentleman. A man of great integrity, my grandfather would have called him "A Prince of a Fellow". It was an honor to know and work with him.

My father was the ranch foreman for Walter from 1956 to 1964 at the Agnes ranch. We lived in the "big house" Walter came out every weekend and Daddy enjoyed his visits very much! He was always so gracious and kind to all of us! A nicer man would be hard to find!

I was a caregiver for almost a year for Mr. Bennett. In that time, I came to know a wonderful man. He was smart, caring, and always smiled. Through the many stories and conversations we shared, I grew to love him. I was there to help him, when in return he brought me great happiness. I am very lucky to have had him in my life. I will miss him very much!

While I only met Mr. Bennett on a couple of occasions, I found him to be a very intellegent & gracious man that truly cared for friends and loved his family with all of his heart, a real Texan and a mans man.
