Louetta Bennett...a name I will always smile at when I hear! Literally one of the sweetest, kindest, strongest family influencers that I've ever met...but with such a kind Godly heart! So glad she is with her Darrell, and her Jesus now! Love you guys and thinking about all of you during this time. I know it's tough! David

I remember me and her would used to sit there and she would help me with school and teach me how to read she was better then all my teachers to be honest.

I cherish the memories of Christmas with the Stephens family hosted by Darrell and Loretta in their home. She was a sweet sweet woman. My prayers and thoughts are with your family at this time.

Recently I was watching a Hallmark Movie (her favorite channel) with Louetta. It was a romance when the couple kissed I asked her if she remembered her first kiss and she said " Yes" I said " ohhhhh, who was it" Louetta said " MY DAD! " So funny I will miss her so much. Heaven has a new beautiful Angel.
