Condolences to Gloria and the rest of Ben's family. He was so easy to talk to and I enjoyed our conversations, Rest easy, Ben.
Ben and his parents we great friends of my parents. I grew up knowing Reba and Zane and BennyOwen as household names. This town had many close families in the mid 40's to the 50's. I think mother, Melba Garner, then living in apt above their residence, helped with Ben as a baby. I say all of this in much sadness at the loss of Ben. He is the last of that close family tie that now fills my memory. Many condolences to the family. God bless you all.❤
