Dear Betty and Family: I Read of Ben's passing in today's local paper. My sincere condolences in your loss. I've thought of you both over the years and wondered where and how you were. Sadly we were never able to keep in touch. I have never forgotten the good times we had back in the 60s. All those nights of playing cards. God bless you in your time of sorrow. - Love, Judy
