To write about Dwight Bensend is not an easy thing for me to do. A letter of thanks to him for all of his kindnesses through the last 30-odd years-yes; a memorial statement yes; an analysis of his manner of living-yes; but to select those few hundred words that explain to young people how he came to be so much revered and how those facets of his life that have come to be so admired might be copied, I find almost beyond me.
