November 19 is a very special day and last year Di's "Benno" had to celebrate amidst the sorrow of losing Di. Di had a way of making up little names for her kids and two that I remember she frequently used for Ben was Benno and B; it was almost her signature style...you could just hear the happiness exude from her voice when she said Benno or B. You couldn't help but smile even when smiling was not of the utmost importance for the particular time and place.
Today is Ben's birthday and I certainly know that with a heavy heart he will be thinking of his mom and I'm sure that there is an extra special kiss that she has sent down from heaven and planted right smack on his cheek today.
Happy Birthday, Benno! Please always remember that your mom loved you so very much and she would only wish the very best for you today and always. Hold all of those memories of her inside your heart and know that she is so very proud of you.
Peace,Good wishes to you...
