    Dear Benny and family,

    I’m so sad to hear that you’ve passed and it took me months to find out. I will miss your European old school charm and I’m so happy that I had at least many great opportunities to interact with you. That last piece you tailored for me will remain forever in my closet especially since it makes me look good. Will need to stay in shape for you. Wish they made more of you. Thanks for the entertainment and making Orange County look good. I always left your store with a smile.

    To Benny and family,

    You were a man with a passion to please others. You lived your life full of joy and with positive energy. I always felt comfortable and at home when at your shop. You loved what you did and it showed. If I could have half the energy that you carried, I would be happy. You will be missed!

    I miss when you would say
    “If you were my son”.
    My blue suit is still with me. Our talks were amazing.
    To this day…I follow the advice.

    Wow – I was shocked to hear Benny had passed….. The ABSOLUTE BEST TAILOR in this entire world! A friend who was so honest yet firm with the truth. I will miss you and all you had to share while you were here. The memories and stories are forever embedded into my memory!
