Ben was a great man and a wonderful father. I know his children and grandchildren will miss him dearly. May they take comfort in knowing that now they have a special guardian angel to watch over them.

The Four Musketeers.... Gene, Steve, Frank and Ben.
On ocassion, Joe Black was the Fifth Musketeer.
As a kid, I admired all these guys and wanted to be just like them.
Pressed pants and cool shirts, they made the line before Z.Z. Top made it famous. They were cool....I think Ben was the coolest.
With or without his music, he made us all happy when he came around.
I could go on and on, but you all knew him as well as I did. Some even more.
I admire all of my uncles and remember them all as LEGENDS!!
Benny Bedell just became one of those LEGENDS!!!
We will remember him always.

Sincerely,
Juan "Johnny" Guzman and Family
