Benny was preceded in death by his father, Beachel Brand, mother, Oma Edwards, and siblings, Ervin Harris, Frankie Brand, Clayton Brand, and Elaine Handley.\n\nAs a Baptist, Benny was a firm believer in the words of the Bible. Isaiah 40:31 offers us comfort in this time: "But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." Benny now soars with the eagles, free from weariness.\n\nWe encourage all who knew Benny to share their memories of him, and upload photographs to his memorial page. In this way, we can all keep the memory of his compassionate and generous spirit alive.
