To Ben's Family. We were so sorry to read that Ben has passed away. Our hearts are with all his family. Ben & us Feds certainly did a lot of work but had so much fun in that process of getting him elected as our MP each time. The weddings we attended,the parties, the conventions, his victories as MP but in particular, our days at his camp & our fishing & his frying of our fish. Wonderful memories. Cherish your memories. Thoughts & prayers for all. R.I.P. our friend Ben. Love Carol & Jeff xo
