    It’s hard to see someone you dearly love pass away. We will remember the good times and let the sad times rest. As you all read this poem, I hope you will see Benny in a new light and think of him as always being with you.

    There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge is a land of meadows, hills and valleys, all of it covered with lush green grass. We will all meet again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.

    I extend my sympathy to all of the Lea family
