Bennett Boy

{a photo of Bennett I took in Sept at our family reunion}

This is my cousin Mandy's youngest boy Bennett. 20 months old and absolutely darling. I think his little face is perfect and angelic even. He passed away 2 weeks ago. Just fell asleep in his bed and never woke back up. He has touched a lot of lives and brought a lifetime of joy to his family in his short little existence on this earth. I was blessed to have know him and am blessed to witness the amazing faith and grace his parents have faced this trial with. It's inspiring to watch. To take a line from Bennett's funeral and obituary. We feel blessed to know "its not good bye, just see ya later".
If it feels like my blog has been a bit neglected lately it's because in Bennett's memory, I am trying to spend less time on the computer, the phone and other distractions to enjoy more day to day moments with my little blessings.
Love you Bennett and Wilkinson Family.
