Linda Dianne Herring Crompton was told this story by her mother, Mary Ella Starling Herring:
Raymond was hit by a street car and died. Raymond and a friend were in down town Miami, visiting Ira Christopher and Della Jones Starling's home. They were living at Ira & Della's, in a bedroom upstairs. Raymond Stokes & Ella Mary Starling Herring were in another bedroom upstairs. Raymond Bennett was late getting home. Ira Starling called Raymond Herring in to speak with him. Ira said, "Raymond Bennett's dead". Then the story came out. When they told this to Della Starling they had to give her smelling salts, because she almost fainted.
