Allan & family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you grieve the death of your Dad/Grandfather. “Children do not know how their parents love them and they never will till the grave closes over those parents or till they have children of their own.” ~ Edmund Vance Cooke Your family has been blessed by his legacy, may you carry it on in your own families.

I have fond memories on Uncle Benny. He was always smiling when I saw him, and cracking jokes. I remember one time, at Grammy's, when he taught me a magic trick, using a piece of ribbon, making it look as though it went right through my neck. I still use this trick at family outings, and everyone tries to make it work, and they just end up "strangling" themselves. It is funny to watch. My regards to you and your families. Janice Sundell
I was bennys caregiver after his wife died. I was with him everyday for six months. He made going to work a joy. One day i arrived to witness the funniest thing i had seen in years. A 95yr old man riding his exercise bike in the front porch while smoking his cigars and drinking red wine. God bless him he was a great man. Rip old friend go be with your jennie. Love Sinead
I always remember Uncle Bennie as a man who was kind to me, shared an eager smile, and despite his hearing loss, was always there to listen. I will miss him. May you all be at peace knowing that he lived a good long life, and was loved by many near and far. June Maselbas, Ray and Ben Katz, Larkspur, CA.
