I remember running into your freshly primered falcon with the mini bike , you laughed and didn't get mad . It's not going to be the same around here with out ya , but it's for a short time and will all be together , and what a time that will be. Love and miss ya uncle Benny

I worked with Benny at Maneta Mills over the summer of 1978. Where he was a fixer. He always made me laugh. He was one heck of a guy. My condolences to his family at the passing of Benny.
