Glad that I had an opportunity to meet Benny and spend some time with him over these past few weeks. He was indeed a fine Christian man who had much love for his family, his church, his community and his country. He always wanted to be sure that respect was paid to the Stars and Stripes and even more so to our Lord. Prayers and blessings for you all.

Pastor Rick
