Vincent, or Ben as most of us gringos called him was a guy that I learned a lot from way back when. Bless his heart, he got stuck with teaching me the skills of plumbing back when I was young, foolish and likely not the most receptive “student.” Regardless, Ben was patient with me and always had a great sense of humor. He also taught me a good bit of Spanish, most of which I could use. My dad Bill thought the world of Ben and I feel pretty sure that they are already getting together in Heaven to laugh and catch up. Sad to hear of Ben’s passing, but so happy that he had such a long life. My condolences to my friends Saul, Joe, Delma and all of your families. Ben was a good man.

My condolences and prayers to the family. May the Lord of Peace comfort you at this time. I have so many nice memories of your Dad. The Word of God says absent from the body and present with the Lord when a Believer passes on. I know Hermano Marin is with the Lord and with Hna Marin. God bless all of you.
