I want to offer my condolences to the Benefield family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). Our heavenly Father of tender mercies knows your pain. He never purposed his human family to have health issues, grow old, and die but to live in perfect health and life forever. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11,29). He calls death an enemy and promised to remove sickness and death__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing"; Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say: "I am sick"; Isaiah 35:5, 6; Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” Finally, He promised to undo the effect of death by bringing our love ones in the memorial tombs back to life__ Hosea 13:14 "From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.” I hope these words give you all comfort.

Prayers for her sweet family, and especially to Uncle Don, Pam & George, and Irmgard, who were by her side during so many of her recent illnesses.
May God bless you all.

Uncle Don,
You and Aunt Edith have always been my favorite Aunt and Uncle. Even though we lost touch long ago, I want you to know I think of you often. You, with your guitar and big smile, and Aunt Edith with that crazy German/Southern accent and yes, the best sweet tea in the south and always trying to feed me.
I love you! Tim and I will be keeping you in our prayers.
Your niece,
Tina (Bettina)

I have wonderful memories of Aunt Edith. She made the best sweet tea that I have ever tasted, grits and fried okra....all my favorites. I have sweet memories at our cabin in North Georgia...I invited Uncle Don and her to visit; then I got too sick to cook so she and mom (Irmgard) took care of me!!! Beautiful, warm memories. She will be missed.

Don, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Remember- to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We can be assured that Edith is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
