Our Ben was a wonderful, caring man. Even if you didn't know him, you should go to his guestbook to see how much he was loved by his local friends, his employees, his cruising friends and his online friends.

We should all be blessed enough to have such a tribute when we go.

Thanks Tweety for sharing that with us, and thanks Liam for "fixing" the link - I had trouble at first...
