    I met your dad while I was waitressing at the House of Ludington. He was sitting there alone at the piano, filling the dining room with beautiful music,I felt privilaged to share that moment with him. He would often come at lunch, order the duck, and we would engage in the most wonderful conversations! What a wonderful, kind, special man your dad was! He loved you so very much! He will be missed…

    Dear family of Dr. Benson,

    On behalf of St. Charles Borromeo and St. Joseph parishes I wish to express my deepest condolences to you. The news of your beloved Father death’s came to me with a great shock. He has been a great man in so many ways. I was privileged to have number of occasions to dine and relate to him. He has been so generous to our parishes, loyal committed member of both St. Charles and St. Joseph in Perkins. Memorial Masses will be celebrated for the happy repose of his soul. Both communities are praying for you at this moment of testing and pain.

    May Bob Benson rest in the Peace of Christ,
