Benny I sure will miss you my Friend, seeing that smiling face always made me smile too. I'm so Thankful that we meet again after so many years apart, over the last couple years catching up on our life experiences meant a lot to me. It's something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Today I'm thinking back when we were in elementary school together, seems like it was just yesterday. I will never forget you in my years to come my Long time FRIEND. RIP MY BROTHER.
