Not sure what to say?

Mr. Bennett was my boss at ESO, and we have kept in touch since 1976. I didn't realize Mr. Bennett passed away until his birthday card came back. When we went to Waukgan a couple weeks go and we stopped by his house, I knew then that somehing happened to my wonderful friend, Mr. Bennett. He was a wonderful person, and when I would visit him when we would head north to Minnesota it was such a pleasure to talk with him. My deepest sympathy to his son and family.

To the Bennett family, my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Father, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Mr Bennett was my Boss at ESO-Bldg. 3400.

We are friends of Tom and Harriet and have had many a wonderful dinner with Bill and Grayce at their home! We always enjoyed our visits with them. Our sympathy is with you. How comforting to know that Bill and Grayce are together again...forever. They were a lovely couple!

You have my deepest sympathy and my prayers are with you. Mr. Bennett was my boss at ESO and we have kept intouch over the years. When ever I would come in town I would always pick him up and we would go to lunch whenever he was able. When Grayce was living they would come and visit me when I was in the area. Great Man!

Bill was a very dear part of my life. Growing up I always felt such peace and love in his presence. I have such cherished fond memories of him. I feel very honored to have known him. I share his lessons with my own children today. I have a little mourning dove family that has taken nest outside my bedroom window. That was the first bird he told me about and every time I see them I think of him. He told me once that the night hawks don't come around anymore. I told him that they come to me...

Bill and Grayce were our neighbors in Waukegan for fourteen years before we moved to Virginia in 1993. We really enjoyed their friendship and could not have asked for better neighbors. Bill took such pride in his yard and garden and taught our youngest daughter alot about nature which she is passing on to her children. We have many fond memories of Bill and he was very proud of his son, daughter-in-law and grandson. We will miss him and were honored to have called him friend and neighbor.
