Two great photos of Benjamin (Barpie) Veno sitting in his yard. 

As a little girl, my dad used to have me sing to "Barpie" and I remember looking into his eyes and thinking how much his eyes were exactly like my dad's.  Barpie died when I was 5 years old, and I remember his eyes!  I was thrilled to see these photos of him.  ~ Betty M Veno Bennette
