The Bentz Family, I'm sorry for your loss, Vonnie was our TKE Sweetheart at the Rock and was Lenny's ROCK. Lenny, your Dad was one of my favorite fraters. He was a wonderful Man and a good friend. Vonnie is with Lenny again and that is good. I know how she missed him, but now they are together again. All the brothers of TKE are saddened for your loss. Our prayers go out to you. Love, Wayne M. Nerone
