    You are my beloved uncle…the last of your kind. You were a standard set before me that I know I have not reached as of yet…still trying. I will always be in awe of the majesty of your mind. In your brilliance, you always remained humble and never made anyone feel less than. I am happy you found your way home to be with Ma, Poppo, and Mama Nell. Look for me later and save my room. I love you Uncle Benny.
