Twelve Days of Christmas, Day 12: Roger Bennett’s family
As I re-read my series of posts for last year’s 12 Days of Christmas Series, entry #1 really stands out. A year ago, this is what I posted:
If I had the power to give anyone any Christmas gift, my first choice would be easy. I would give Roger Bennett a clean bill of health.
For years, Roger Bennett and Anthony Burger were Southern Gospel’s two most popular pianists, legends in the making. But with Burger dead and Bennett off the road for now, Southern Gospel lost its two best in one fell swoop. So it was an easy decision to pick Bennett to start this series.
Of course, he is now cancer-free at last. But my Christmas wish and prayer today is that God would grant Roger’s wife Debbie and their children Chelsea and Jordan peace and comfort as they face their first Christmas season without him.
