Our deepest condolences on the passing of dear Benny....she truly was a treasure that we all were fortunate to have in our lives. Even as a little girl, I remember knowing how much she cared for all of us....always asking what we were doing and she kept up to date with all of our lives even as we grew into adults and had our own families. She will be missed.
Love to all,
