Remembering Benny

You had your first stroke before I even met you. But you were a fighter, and I have many memories of you in the years that followed. You spent a week with us in Dallas -- meeting all our friends and feeding us fried catfish. You took me to buy the best peaches I've ever tasted direct from the man who grew them. You lived your life to its fullest, even after moving into assisted living. BR and I still tell the "Budweiser" joke, but not nearly as well as you.

It's been three years since you passed. BR appreciates the nighttime visits from his daddy.

Hi0 Steve,

Benny looks and sounds like he was a great fellow.

Love to hear the budweiser joke.

There are several variations of the Budweiser joke floating around on the web. I like this one the best.
