Please accept my sincere condolences . We can’t be with you at this time as we are in Seattle visiting our grandchildren. I have very special memories of the entire family and especially my big brother Benny. From the earliest days of learning to wash and wax a car, to being thrown into Lake Beseck and told “swim”. Being dressed up as a floral delivery boy, serving as an interpreter because of his inability to speak French while dating Flo. Sunday mornings at the Capital Diner, learning to drive a stick shift. Helping me pick out a good car(s), and on and on. He was hard nosed with a gentle heart. Lead the way my friend.... Always , Roger
