Rest in Peace my Cousin, you were larger than life itself and had the most wonderful and deep laugh, never to be forgotten!

I flew to Texas not too long ago, and brought along my friend Efrain, you opened your arms to us, introduced us to your wonderful and sweet family and took us to the most raved Steak House and ordered for us all. We talked at great lengths of Star Trek and noticed my friend falling asleep at the table, but you and I were on the same level and having a great time. You were the best host, made us feel so welcomed and you my cousin, were Texas! I longed to return and see you again, but alas you left too early and now your with your Mom, Dad and Brother.....you will always be in my heart dear cousin.

This is a sad time for all who knew and cared for my nephew, Benjamin. I have fond memories of him as he was growing up. Each time that I visited my sister and her family I will always remember how Benjamin would be so happy to see me. You will always be remembered and missed by all who knew you and cared for you Benjamin. R.I.P. nephew, you are not forgotten.

A memory that I have of Mr. Ben is that he would speak about the hurricane that might hit Texas. I live in Baton Rouge, La and I'm from Houston, Tx. I loved to hear Mr. Ben speak about the big state of Texas. Another hurricane is in the Gulf of Mexico now. I could imagine what Mr. Ben would say. I send my prayers and condolences to his family. Mr. Ben was such a lively person. I put him at the end of a video at work to close it out with his lively character. Mr. Ben is missed!

I remember as a kid whenever we would go visit I would sit on his bedroom floor watching him play his attri game and when he would come home from school he would bring home pepperoni pizza from pizza hut.
We talked on messenger the morning he passed and talked every day I will miss him.

When I was little, he lived at home with my grandparents, and so did I, so he was like a really big brother to me as a little kid. Some of my earliest memories were of him, and most of them full of his booming laughter and very "Dad-ish" jokes. When he started a family of his own, I spent countless hours playing at their apartment and then their house, swimming in the pool and getting strategically and mercilessly beat at Chess, Risk, Monopoly, Stratego, Cards and a million other games, and as an adult I remember how much I enjoyed that time everything my kids want to play a game with me..
I met my husband at his house long before I was old enough to find boys interesting, and it was my home away from home growing up.
When I needed help, or got in trouble, he was always there to (sometimes literally) bail me out, and while he never let me forget some of the dumbest things I've ever done, I think that having someone who remembered it all and loved me anyway was the best gift he could have given me.
Throughout his life, I can't think of a single time that I saw him when he didn't make me laugh, and I struggle to find a memory of him that wasn't, even during my hardest times after my dad, and his brother passed, a happy one.
He will be missed, and his memories treasured, until we meet again.
