    Ben was a kind and gentle man. I will miss our weekly phone calls. Even when Ben was sick he was still always there to encourage me and lift me up when I was down. I have so many wonderful memories with Ben. Dairy palace coffee, music in the streets, cheeseburgers at King Chicken, Friday night hotdogs at Sheetz, going to spot light for deer on the country roads, taking me to church, cooking on the grill, sitting on the porch drinking coffee at sunset, riding around in his truck and listening to old music hits. Ben truly made my life special. I have been blessed to be apart of your family and to have such wonderful friends. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
