What a standard you set dear Joy! You cared So much and put you whole self on the line for Racial Amity, for the downtrodden, the sick,the needy,and stood up for justice and equality for yourself and all others. You suffered but were patient in God. You were a leader in the Bahai community. You were frail; but mighty and I will never forget the life lessons you taught me. Now you are free from pain and united with your mother, father and Jane. Thank you for being a presence in my life!

Dr. Benson, I was saddened by your loss. But I also remembered what you taught us for our reason for being at work was for the working poor. You poured your heart and soul into every battle for public health. You were a true warrior. Fly now with the angels and know you will forever be in my heart. Love you, Kim Brummitt
