To John's Family I am truly sorry of the passing of John. He was such a delightful man. I would see him at church and his greetings were so kind and Leti was not far away giving the same kindness. We didn't share a lot of moments but the ones we did will not be forgotten in my heart. May God's love and peace follow his family continually.

My sincerest condolences to all the Benavides family. I regret that I will not be able to attend the services, as I am currently caring for my wife. My great friend, how I remember the many many times we cruised around Hondo enjoying our high school years listening to loud heavy metal music. I've never forgotten how you and your family were always so welcoming to me. I still remember one of the last times we bumped into one another in San Antonio as you were leaving for Fort Dix, NJ for Army Basic Training and I was heading off to San Diego, CA for Marine Corps Boot Camp. Who would have thought our rebellious souls would end up in the military. You were a great friend and I will always cherish your friendship and memory.
