In Loving Memory of Florence Marie "Faye" Benson. May You Rest in Peace.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Florence Marie Benson, 62, born on November 20, 1923 and passed away on November 6, 1986. We will remember her forever.

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,

other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed

that during the low periods of my life,

when I was suffering from

anguish, sorrow or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,

"You promised me Lord,

that if I followed you,

you would walk with me always.

But I have noticed that during

the most trying periods of my life

there have only been one

set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,

you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,

"The times when you have

seen only one set of footprints,

is when I carried you."

"Mom what can I say that would ease my heartache of loosing you almost 30 years ago other than I love, adore your memory and miss you. You were the type of mother and wife that I've strived to be each and everyday of my marriage and motherhood. You were selfless, hardworking, caring and giving to your children. You were a hardworking life partner to dad helping to provide a stable home life for all of us. Unfortunately too many years of hard work and sacrifice took you from us at an early age. The day the Angels took you from us is etched in my mind like the times of sand and I've shed tears so plentiful that they could fill an ocean. Love and Miss You Mom everyday in every way."

"Mom, a typical warm, caring Italian Mom who shared her love.  Her kids were her life. Everyone she met loved her from the first moment.  It's been 30 years since you passed and I still think of you everyday.  Every time I would tease you, you would run for the belt but before you could swing it I made you laugh.  Best Mom ever. Miss you Mom."
