This has really touched my heart, and the tears will not stop flowing. I am truly heart broken over this shameful matter....I wish I had some kind of memory with you, but your light shines brightly through your children, whom I have had that pleasure with. I'm truly sorry that you had to go through such a terrible thing. Though I don't remember seeing your face, I think about you often. I pray that you have the answers to your life's questions....and that you can finally have peace. My heart loves your spirit..... -DEANDRA SPEARS-

Benita, This year, as I light a candle in your honor, I remember we also lost your first born son Johnnie (Jay) this year. I honor the wonderful mother that you were. The loss of Jay makes your loss even more tragic.

This has been one of the hardest things for me to do...I so want to believe that you are alive and well somewhere out there waiting for us to find you. The last time I talked to you stains my mind because the next few days after I heard that you were missing. You and Barnabus Warren got me through high school and now you are both gone. I miss and love you both. 'Til we meet again...

Mrs. Moore Spears, I would have loved to meet you, and I can only imagine what a wonderful person you are from the love and joy you passed to your son. I will do the best I can to be the good woman you would like him to have, and I hope that I make you proud as well. May you be at peace and in God's grace. Forever missed but not forgotten.

I am a lifelong Moore family friend. Without ever meeting Benita, it is clear that Dionne and Crystal loved and admired her tremendously. May her candle burn eternally in our hearts.

My sympathy goes out to the entire Moore family, but there’s also a sense of peace and closure that this memorial is taking place. Not a day goes by when I don't think of Benita.

I never met aunt Benita but she sounds like a caring woman. Her pictures are beautiful. Her brother, Robert, who is my dad, shares them with me. I wish I had a chance to meet you.
