  2. Bennie was a brother to me. I have so enjoyed our past few months just hanging out, eating and sharing stories. He has been a part of my life nearly 45 years- hard to imagine not picking up the phone to call or have him drop by with one of his new recipes! H is devastated, as am I- just can’t wrap our minds around this. So fast and unexpected. I’m thankful for our memories and precious family we are surrounded by. God bless and keep his family close during this difficult time.
