Goodby but not forgotton:
    Thank you for passing on this sad news. I am reminded that "living is
part of dying", those words helped me with my recent loss. It will be my
priviledge to remember both of the Benedicts each time I see one of their
hosta creations.

> Clarence Nance; Audra and Fred Wilson; InSook Seo; Hideko Gowan and Hans
> Hansen.  We will hold a small, private memorial at noon today.
> Herb will be remember in all our gardens and in our hearts.  He is with
> love, Dorothy and has a new and perfect body.  We have much to be thankful
> for and to rejoice in.  Herb and Dorothy were among God's many wonderful
> creations.
> Sincerely,
