It was on the mourn
That I saw a ship a sailing
The sea was calm
Tom was young
And he was at the rail.

I will remember you always. Lisa

Tom Benson, may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

I have known Tom for many years particularly when he first established a car dealership back in the 60s and 70s....I was a manager back then...a class act...He loved the saints and New Orleans...He was a very giving man way back in the day and helped me financially with my childrens education when was first starting out...I will never forget you...
