Condolences to Michelle B, who’s mother passed away earlier this week. Services were held on Wednesday, several Benders made the trip to show their respects. Showing again that being a Bender extends being a group of people that just run together. We extend our deepest sympathies to Michelle B and her family during this time. Flowers were sent on behalf of the group.
