On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-snot just as a LEO but also when you served with the U.S. Army during WW II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I was 11 yrs old when Benny died. I remember vividly late night in my parents front room hearing about his death on the job.
As a child I remember the sadness and shock we all felt.
We lived across the street from Benny and Fran. We were close friends with them and the children. We still stay in touch.
Benny was a family man, and loved by all.

Dad helped me do a science project Sunday night, a study of the planets. We built a display of the Universe, it looked awesome and sure to win an award. The following morning he dropped me off at school, smiled and waived good bye... 58 years later, I don't remember if we won an award or but I do remember that morning as if it was yesterday.

I was 4 years old when he passed, but he will forever be remembered and greatly missed. He was a wonderful quiet man who loved his family and he was my Uncle. You are forever in my heart and not forgotten.

Rest In Peace.

"Final Call"
An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do.
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.

Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
"Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way."
"Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through."
"Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine, I'm A Cop, Too."

Benedetto was in our service long before I came in. The job is quite different now. But some things never change, like our appreciation for the bravery and selfless acts of those who came before. As I near retirement I sincerely wish he had the same chance.

Blessings from USPIS Badge #3942 to his family and all those who loved him.

I am so honored to leave a reflection for my grandfather. I never met him, I was born in 1983. Grandpa, your bravery, commitment, and courage have not been forgotten and continue to be appreciated. Many of your family members have followed in your footsteps with careers in the USPS. Even though you are missed everyday, your actions and bravery will last a lifetime. God Bless.
