I was fortunate to call Ben my friend for over 50 years. That seems so hard to believe. He was one of the kindest, most humble men I've ever known. He and Lorraine were like family. He always had a smile and a kind word no matter how he worked or how hot it was. He was an artist with shrubs and took great pride in his work.If there were more Ben's in the world, it would be a better place.
