Dear Charles, Stevie, and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Benny from my childhood. Mom (Miria Griffith) took us to visit your home often. Elizabeth was a good friend to my mother and we still talk about those days and the memories we made with your family. Benny played a part in all of them. I do not live nearby or I would come for the visitation. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May God’s peace be with you. Norma Griffith Krahe

I first met Benny in the 80's through some fellow martial arts friends. Benny was a very high energy and competent martial artist who embraced all styles, finding good in them. My condolences go to out to the family, may God bless you and provide you comfort and healing during this time of loss.
