Hispanic Community Loses Pioneer and Member of NHSN's Extended Family
Our dear Ana Anders' brother, Bernardo Benes, died January 14, 2019 at the age of 84. Benes was a successful banker, journalist, attorney and civil leader who helped make Miami the capital of Latin America that it is today. He was instrumental in negotiating the release of 3,600 political prisoners and their families. He co-founded the first Cuban-American bank in the United State and United Way International.
Bernardo was a loving brother to Ana, who was our Madrina for so many years. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Ana and her family in their time of grief.
