Not sure what to say?

Dear family of Clarence, I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Clarence since 1995, during our visits and time together had many conversations about every subject one can think of, and all were meaningful.Of all the people I have met in my lifetime I am proud to have known Calence and he represents what is "good" in mankind. i k\know that he loved his family and would anything for anyone that he could to make life better.He always treated me with respect and will be missed always....

Kathy and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time, Know that Mr Benke is in a better place and will be waiting for you all to join him one day. I remember well when he used to sing and play in the choir in church. He was always a nice person. He will be greatly missed.

Dear family of Clarence... knowing that every person will some day leave this World and go to meet our Savior, it is still difficult to accept it when this occasion happens. Clarence and his dad taught me a lot about music, how to play the guitar, etc. - those are fond memories that I will have forever.
May the good Lord bless you at this very trying time and may the perpetual light shine on the soul of Clarence.
My love to all.
