Regarding the obituaries, May 19, page 28:
I am sorry to hear of the passing of Father Joseph Beno.
He was at St. Joseph Parish in Salem during my entire high school years and officiated at our wedding in 1964.
When our son was born in 1965, he was at St. Mary in Eugene and we had just moved there. It was very special to us that he baptized our son.
He was a kind and gentle pastor with a great sense of humor. I will never forget how much he meant to all of us at Sacred Heart Academy.
