    Dearest Bennett Familly,

    I am deeply saddened by the loss we all share. I am assured that we will be comforted by our memories and our love for Betty which is still very much alive.
    You know.. we never really think that those so near and dear to us will really pass, so I know this must be especially hard for everyone. Just know that you are surrounded by people who love and support you during this difficult time. I will continue to keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers.
    Thank you so much to the kind, beautiful soul that went above and beyond to get the news out to me. Don’t ever change what makes you.. you. I know Grandma is and will always be proud of you.

    With love,
    Stephanie Limbaugh Mazur

    Dearest Bennett Family,

    When I heard the news, I was incredibly saddened and then shock set in. We never really think that those so near and dear to us will really pass, so I know this must be especially hard on many of you. There will be sad days and rough days, and days that you need someone to talk with or vent to, and hell maybe someone to someone to laugh with, remember that Grandma is with you always now, happy to listen. I hope you find comfort knowing that she is with Jesus in heaven. While I don’t know what everyone needs right now, know that my heart goes out to all of you, and I’m sorry I couldn’t be there today.

    Stephanie Limbaugh M
