      Very sorry about the passing of your uncle.  I didn’t know him that well but when I did run into him he was a quite a charactor.  Another member of the greatest generation is gone.  Soft landing trooper.

I got to know Ben, when he started to volunteer at Conestoga View. I have memories of when Ben and I went to Las Vegas together. He enjoyed the trip. Rest in peace, Ben!
