Benito Flores was a long time family friend since the 1960's while we all lived in Arizona. Benito loved playing his guitar and started a band which my brother played drums. Benito kept in touch with my brothers after we all moved to California.
Benito had been ill for a long time, he and my brother spent much time together praying. Benito was very loved by family and friends. A very good man is now living in Heaven.
God Bless Benito and his family.
