I am sorry for your loss. I will always remember that Dr. Bender was the first to sign my Berks County Voting Petition to attempt to run for Recorder of Deeds in the spring of 1999. I applied to Berks Campus at the age of 49 to compete with my youngest son for a BA. My youngest son died in 2019, he was run over by a car on Spring Valley Road. When I think of one of them, I can only remember both of them being there. Dr. Bender was stubborn on some issues but helpful of others. I am sure he helped my students at Berks Campus. If no one else says it, Thank you, Dr. Bender for your time there. Sincerely, Annemarie G. Missonis
