Dear Angie, Frankie & Linda, I'm deeply sadden to hear about Benny. He was such a nice person, I have a lot of fond memories of him. He always made me feel special whenever I saw him, and he loved to talk. You are all in my Prayers.

I am blessed and honor to have met Benny and Angie Resta back in 1984 when I moved next door to them. I didn't live there long but, I knew right away that I found two people who not only would become my friends, but whom became part of my family. Right away they both opened up their home introduced me to their two children and their family. But most of all they opened up their hearts. I know I have two beautiful parents whom I love very much, but I always knew in my heart that Benny and Angie would be a part of my life and I loved them like my own parents. They both always knew that I would do anything for them. Benny you may be gone but I will always remember and cherish so many wonderful loving memories that we shared.We had so much fun together.I loved being around you.
Thank you, Benny for being such an important person in my life. I love you and will miss you forever.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for I too know the pain of losing someone you love. May your family find comfort as I have in knowing that our loving heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will 'swallow up death forever, and wipe the tears from all faces.' (Isaiah 25:8) What a wonderful day that will be!
