35: June Irene wells Benoit and Donald Prescott Benoit married and gave birth to eleven children. Through many happy and at times trying years, they collected a lifetime of photos. These have been pawed through by children, carefully placed into albums, pawed through again by curious family members and dragged from one home to another as Mom and Dad moved many-many times. How they survived at all is a miracle. This past year (2012), Mom, Dad and I spent hours and hours and days upon days photographing, scanning, sorting, boxing and finally creating this lovely rendition of the hundreds of scattered memories of our Benoit clan. We hope these pictures, now organized and permanently placed, will be enjoyed for many years to come by you and our families.
