    MY “old buddy” is MISSED! We had so many years together in so many venues; business, work, old cars, sweet times of visiting. I even helped him in his shop so he could go get his knee replacement done. Benny was ALWAYS happy, telling jokes, AND OH the STORIES! Benny LIVED his love of CHRIST to those around him: always willing to HELP; with loving kindness. I want to be just like him when I grow up!
