    I would like to extend my deepest sympathy for the lost of Benny. I am a distant cousin and I spoke with Benny just last year to let him know about the Williams family reunion. I was hoping to meet him. He said he would make it and I wish he would have. I would have loved to have met benny. I wish Della and Kathy all the best for it is so hard to lose a father. May Benny rest in peace and I am sure all the Williams angels is welcoming him home. God bless you all! Love Gina
