    It breaks my heart not having you here in this world to talk too when I want and to harass you when I want. Death sucks and health issues sucks and all the other stuff in between sucks. You brought up so many memories to my soul and mind when I found about you passing from this world.

    Your smile would always make my heart smile. Your words would always make my day brighter. Your actions would always make soul grow. I could not face the horrors you faced when you were alive but wished I did. I wished so many words to be said to you especially after those people cut off your leg. I’m sorry for all the pain you went through and all the unsaid words left unsaid. I’m sorry I failed you as your nephew. Thank you for being my Uncle! Thank you for showing me kindness, love, and wisdom in many of my challenging moments. Thank you for always loving me for me. Thank you for always being that beacon of light. Uncle your daughters and son I am grateful for. Know I will keep my eyes on them the best I can especially our precious Essence. Thank you for watching over everyone the best you could. Your legacy shall continue always through the love and hearts of those who knew you and through my heartbeat as I walk through this life. As the many tears roll down my face it has been a great privilege and honor to have called and still call you my Uncle!

    Love you always and forever… until that day I next see you know you go with me everywhere, everyday for your love, memories, and experiences will always be some of my greatest treasures to my heart , mind, and soul!!!

    Know always you are loved and always remembered forever and a day! It is written and so it shall be!

    Love you Uncle!!!

    Love ,

    Derek Benn
