Mr. Benson was a great man. I had the pleasure of knowing him and hanging out with him some years back. Always had a great sense of humor and some good stories to try of the old days here in Kerrville. About the cost of things and pay back in the days. He even let me borrow his truck a couple of times, that was his treasure, always very well kept. I heard he had the nicest vehicles back in the days. I will miss his big smile ๐Ÿ˜Š. That all his children have as well. My Condolences to the Benson family ๐Ÿ™ my prayers are with you โค๏ธ
