A smile I'll never forget.
Hi Vickee, Ben was such a stand-up guy, a real “mensch.” It was wonderful to read about all the ways he showed his humanity, his zest, and his respect for you as a woman, a girlfriend and a friend. It seems clear you were good for Ben, offering him a listening ear and open heart and a partner in fun and sometimes zany pursuits. I’m so sorry he died so young. Your piece surely brought home the vitality and goodness that his life, however abridged, stood for.
