To Ronnie, Scott, David, Kenny, and the extended family:

My condolences to you in the loss of your dad. I always enjoyed his company and seeing him at the ten Bensel reunions almost always whenever I was there. I remember so well the wonderful times we had at your place. And yes, I remember that ball that went through the window.
Life is short and it seemed like only yesterday when we were young and growing up together and attending the school in Wilsonville (referring especially to Ronnie and Linda). I sure miss those days, but I look forward to that new day when Christ will come in glory and I will be forever with loved ones and in His presence.
May we all be ready for that day for Christ is our only hope in life. May God's blessings be with you.

Dennis L. Palmer
