what a fantastic golfing weekend had by the 12 of us at the Forest of Arden. the competition went down to the last put on the last hole by the last pairing to decide which team won Benny's Memorial Cup. the script couldn't have been written any better. Mate I made that emotional last put for the Northern Team so the cup has come home. I have thanked everyone for thier kind remarks about you and how you've been missed this weekend. The Minute siilence on the first Tee by us all was moving tribute to you. Phil x

I seem to have slipped into a parallel world

A familiar yet unfamiliar place

and everything goes dark

And then i see your smiling face

Right there inside my heart

Miss you Benny

Remember me

julie and Barry

31 December 2010

Do not shed tears when I have gone but smile instead because I have lived.


Do not shut your eyes and pray to God that I'll come back but open your eyes and see all that I have left behind.


I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me but still I want you to be full of the love we shared.


You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday.


You can remember me and grieve that I have gone or you can cherish my memory and let it live on.


You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your back on the world or you can do what I want - smile, wipe away the tears, learn to love again and go on.

Dear Family of David Bennett,

When tragedy strikes and takes the life of our loved one, we cry out with great sorrow. But please be assured that your tears are not unnoticed by the Creator of life. Although your deep pain will not easily disappear, praying to God will bring comfort to you as you grieve. The Bible tells us that God is "healing the broken-hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spot". (Psalm 147:3) May the "Father of tender mercies" and the "God of all comfort" strengthen your faith and give you courage to face the days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3) I am very sorry for your loss.


Our Son David
