I'm so sorry for your familys loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I personally know the loss of a loved one, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However, I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future (Acts 24:15) I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

My heart broke when I heard of Bennie’s passing. I remember when my mom worked at the Holiday Inn when I was a very little girl, I would go to the bar when Bennie was setting up and he would make me a Shirley Temple with all the flourish and fancy of a real cocktail. He was always very kind to me and my mom thought the world of him.

I am absolutely heartbroken at the loss of Benny. I am so glad that I got to know him through my best girlfriend Amy. Thank you, Benny for welcoming us into your home and always being kind to my Johnny. He’ll miss playing pool with his buddy. I hope that wherever you are the beer is cold and the music is right. We’ll remember you always. Love you, man.

I will never forget all the Sunday afternoons hanging out at Bennies apartment by the pool with plenty of bbq and cold beer and I felt like I was part of the family of many close friends that lived there and came over. Bennie made me feel welcome as he did everyone else and always made sure I had a cold one in my hand. He had a big heart and I will never forget him or his kindness. He was a special guy that always thought of others and I will miss his friendship as many others probably will too. Rest in peace bro
