I n loving Memory of Ken

Ken Bennet, passed away this morning around 1:15 am. Thankfully, he wasn't alone!! His son Justin, his wife Janie, & his sister Gale were all in the room with him when he took his last breath.
Day before yesterday I sat in the room with him for awhile just talking to him. He wasn't coherent, but I do believe he heard me. He really suffered there at the end, but he just kept holding on. He was always a fighter!! I dont believe he was really ready to totally let go, because he was always so worried about his son's. He told his son Justin he feared not being able to go to heaven, because he felt as though he failed as a father. Two of his son's turned to drugs after their real mother passed away years ago. We were all just kids then, I think I was maybe 8 or 10 years old when I first met Justin. Their mother had passed a year or two before I actually met them. But they never really got away from the drug scene, even to this day. One of his son's is in prison for just that DRUGS. So he wasn't able to be there for his dad during his last few days. I told Justin he still has a chance to make his father proud of him & I do believe he will do just that. Sometimes when something like this happens people that use drugs, turn to drugs to numb their pain. But I m hoping & praying that he wont. I will do my best to keep him away from any & all drugs. I would hate to see him go down that path.

Ken, you will be remembered & I will do my best to help Justin, Janie, & Gale through all this.
You will be greatly missed! The neighborhood just wont be the same without you.

Love always & forever, MM XOXOXOXOXOX
