Gary, Benny and I had such good times together over the years! He loved to go with us to estate sales, and yard sales. He always met someone to talk to there. He loved to make people laugh. We always ended the day with supper at a nice restaurant, he did love to eat! He would cut up and laugh while we were there, and make others laugh with him, and at him. You never knew what was going to come out of his mouth! He was a good friend to many, many people here in Athens, and Riceville, Tn. He will never be forgotten, that is for sure. Rest In Peace Benny, we will see you again one day! We cherished your friendship. We sure loved you, and miss you already.
