Once a Saint, always a Saint. After the @Saints win in week 16 against the Falcons, @SeanPayton and @drewbrees gave Tom Benson the game ball, thanking him for all of his contributions made towards the team. RIP Tom, you will be missed. pic.twitter.com/C5tzoTb98X

I will forever be indebted to Mr. Tom Benson for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to be a member of the Saints organization and the New Orleans community. I will miss his presence, leadership, and grandfatherly advice. We know you will continue to watch over us all with that umbrella in your hand.
