    Burton K. Bennett, Sr., Veteran

    USA

    Greensboro, North Carolina - 21 Apr 2017



    ABOUT THE MISSION:

    Follow Patriots:

    We once again have been requested to stand for Mr. Bennett and his family. Mr. Bennett was in the US Army from 1946-1948. While Burt served in the Army he was a radio operator and parachutist with the 11th Airborne Division in occupied Japan, then graduated from University of South Carolina, and was a member of Pi Kappa Phi. Burt enjoyed a long and wonderful life, especially in the early days of Shagging at North Myrtle Beach, SC. He also was inducted in the Shag Hall of Fame in 1995, and his picture and words about shagging can be found among other members at the OD Resort in NMB. Burt was a private pilot for many years and immensely enjoyed golf, bird watching, traveling, and bridge tournaments. He was 89 years old. Family and friends will truly miss Mr. Bennett.

    So please let's show the family in what we do best as Brothers and Sisters of the PGR. Thanks.

    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    It is with the utmost respect that I offer my condolences to the family of a true American Hero. May you rest in the knowledge that your duty was well done and you have the gratitude of an entire nation for your sacrifice and your service. I know that you will now be in the company of your fellow veterans who have gone before you and who will welcome you at Heaven’s Gate upon your arrival. Stand down now and know that we will carry on your legacy of freedom for all our citizens. To your family and friends I ask that God comfort them now in their time of despair and remain with them as they adjust to their loss.
