I met Ben when his children were very young. I was their babysitter for several years. He then asked me to work for him in his State Farm office. I was a very young girl but I gave it a try. I learned so much from Ben during the years working there. I owe him everything as far as my professional life. He helped mold me into who I am today. I have always had a good job and that is because he took a chance on me. And with that I want to say “Thanks Ben.” You were one of the best. War Eagle! Rest In Peace.

To the entire family: I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Ben. Ben Jr. I will always cherish the memories of making Italian Sausage and having some cold drinks at Mama Juliano’s home in Ensley as well as many other great and fun times with your Dad. Ben was always my insurance agent and he would always help me through some difficult times. May his soul Rest In Peace and may God give you and your entire family all the faith and strength to get through this difficult time.
