  11. Aggie and Families, brothers and sister,
    Sincere sympathy to each of you. As one of your many cousins we grew up calling him “Teddy Ben” so even when I saw you at church it was “Hello, Teddy Ben”. He was always cheerful and helpful at our parish picnics. I recall one of the times we talked after Sunday Mass. He was joking …said he was finally the “CEO” of the Stallings Family, which was by default since his older brothers and sister had died. We laughed… he always was interested in “how is the family doing?” One night I received a phone call asking about someone in our family history heritage….said he couldn’t remember their name although I have it in a box somewhere here. Along with big stature, he had a big heart. Love and prayers to all his family and may you have God’s peace during this sorrowful time. Rest in peace “Teddy Ben”.

  12. Thoughts and prayers with. I will miss seeing Tater at church. May God surround you with His gentle care. Eleanor Renshaw
