To Ben's family, You have our heartfelt sympathy. We had the pleasure of getting to know Ben back in the years when he had his deli and his parents had their store right here in our neighborhood. All great people. We all shared laughs with Ben. Thankfully we were able to touch base with him now and then later in life. He was always involved in doing something good for others. Ben was a good happy soul. He will live in our memories. Monica & Doug
