To the Benoit family so sorry for your loss of Eldridge Benoit who we knew as Shawee truly one of a kind. Our family shared many wonderful times with the Benoit’s when my sister married his brother Lloyd. Know he will be missed but I can imagine he is having a beautiful reunion with loved ones. Can you hear the stories being told? May God Bless.
