  10. We were friends thru his parents. Rented the little house behind his Dad and Mothers for a few months they treated us like family. When the children would come over they invited us to eat with them. Benny and his brothers would be there and they were such a delight to be around. He will truly be missed. Our prayers are you will be comforted in this hour of distress.
