In loving memory of Ms. Cindy Tate Benson, who passed away peacefully on Wednesday,

were nothing short of invaluable. Her unwavering commitment, dedication, and positive spirit
left an enduring mark on the TelExpress organization, and her absence will be deeply felt by all
who had the privilege of working alongside her.
Beyond her professional life, Cindy found the greatest happiness in spending time with her
adored granddaughter, Avery, and her immensely supportive son, Kevin, and daughter-in-law,
Stacey. She also had a deep passion for caring for her feline companions over the years.
