|Let the memory of Dapnne be with us forever|
"Happy Birthday Mommy and Daddy. I miss you guys so much."
"Keep shining my dear sister. Still love and miss you."
"God gives and God takes away.
As for me I have no complaints.
I always cherish the precious gift I was given
And I rejoice in the divine plan to change the course of many lives by the unselfish devotion of one incredible woman.
You see...her children were chosen, handpicked, from circumstances of obscurity
Seemly insignificant and crude due to the realities of their birth and given as daughters to a woman of great worth.
How different would our life stories be if to another we were given. But God loved us so much that only to an angel would he to us entrust.
So what was brimming with the abundance of love was now in full bloom and this miracle by God's design is now revealed... Daphne Elizabeth Bennett lives on in the three of us.
She was filled with so much love. In every way she molded us, three diamonds in the rough. She loved and she prodded, she suggested but never imposed, sacrificed and persisted until she saw her wisdom finally stuck.
To be a mother- that is easy, a simple biological fact! To be a beloved mom is no easy accomplishment and only the truly courageous can achieve that. And if for more than the last fifteen years you've knew her, you too will agree that she held nothing back and gave the best of her self to the three of us.
So If you want to see Daphne again, if even a glimpse of what she professed to be, take a look in her daughters and tell us what you see.
If we walk with dignity, grace and poise Daphne Elizabeth Bennett lives on in us
If we answer your questions with astuteness and intelligence it's our mom within us
And if something we say inspires you because of its wisdom, profoundness and undeniable truth that is also Daphne deep within us
If we appear sensible, practical and disciplined, committed and long suffering, these qualities were instilled in us
If just a hint of stubbornness and self sufficiency, that was Daphne
And if you look at my daughters and you are impressed by their aura remember that they are also Daphne's granddaughters
If you see our love, warmth and acceptance of those we meet, that's one of the many things we learnt at her feet.
If we perform acts of extreme self-sacrifice and are spun into action by compassion, kindness, empathy and mercy and you ask yourself how could this be. The only answer to that question would be Daphne.
And if by some great fortune you knew her, and you are honest with yourself and took the time to examine, and if you reflect on your encounters, I am sure you would also conclude that a little bit of Daphne also lives on in you."
"Dear Aunt Daphne, you were a light in this world (kind, thoughtful, strong and beautiful). Rest in Peace. We will always remember and love you."
"My dear sister I will never stop loving you. Sleep on and take your rest"
"My condolences go out to the family of Daphne Elizabeth Bennett. From reading about Daphne, I can tell she will be missed. When one loses a loved one in death it is very painful. One way to get comfort from such a loss, is by turning to the scriptures. The scripture that I like is at Revelation 21:4, it says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". So you can see that the Bible promises that one day people will not have to die. But have you ever wondered about our dear loved ones that have already fallen asleep in death? The Bible speaks of reuniting us with our loved ones by means of the resurrection hope. John 5:28,29. It says: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment". So there is hope for those who have already died. There is the prospect that we will be able to be with them once again. I do hope these scriptures is comforting to you. There is a web site you can go to if you have any questions that you would like answered. www.jw.org"
"I don't know what to say. There is so much I should have said when you were alive and now I wont get the chance to and it hurts so much. I love you auntie and may your soul rest in peace."
Have a suggestion for us?
