Reba and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Benny was a wonderful man. He always has a twinkle in his eye. I was delighted to run into him at Hy-Vee on numerous occasions, where we would catch up on our lives and loved ones. Gosh, we all go back to the `70s! Can you believe it? I will really miss running into him. I pray for peace and happy memories for all of you. God bless.
