My grandpa was the best person that i could ever have known. My grandpa was and still is the best man that my grandma has ever met. Grandpa wasn't just an amazing grandpa, he was a coworker to some, a friend, a kind neighbor, an amazing husband, and an amazing father. My grandpa didn't just raise his own children he also raised his grandchildren. He taught us how to love, live ,and to even laugh. Without him none of us would have been such great people today. Grandpa carved an amazing path for us to follow. My grandpa was so proud of us. My grandpa stopped what he was doing to do what you asked of him. Lately I didn't want to go to his house because I wanted to go to my cousin's house but I regret that. My grandpa used to always take forever going to that scrap yard and I used to always hate it because it was so annoying. But I regret it now I want to go to the scrap yard with him. I was in a choir group and my grandpa would always pick me up from rehearsals. He was so proud of me when I was aloud to perform at the Straz Center. He was the first one to purchase tickets. He was so proud of his little baby. I wish he was here to see me sing more. My grandpa was always there for me no matter what the problem was that is why I love him with all of my heart. My grandpa was and still is my sun and he is the reason I wake up in the morning everyday. I love him very much. My grandpa was and still is the best because no matter what he always had our backs. I love u.

It's so difficult to lose a loved one,a friend, a family member, a mentor,a hero but when you lose an Uncle who incorporates all these attributes words just can't explain.
Rest in Peace Tio Ben. We will always love you, until we see again.
