    I’m really sorry to hear of Benny’s pasting. He was a great man that I admired and truly have love for. I was a young man when I first meet Benny and to this everyday I still remember the lessons he taught me. Family was extremely important to him and he made me understand that importance. Life is short and understanding the value of self was always a talking point from him to me. Thank you Benny for teaching me to love myself the way The Lord loves me for me. To his family we may never have meet Benny was important to others as he was to you nothing but the best and may God continue to bless you
