    We are so sad to lose our dear friend Ben! He was the kindest gentleman you could ever meet... and had the warmest smile you could ever see!! He can rest now from all his hard work. We'll carry on the Ministry until we have the joy of hugging him again.

    My late husband, Gerald, called Ben, "Gentle Ben." He was such a humble, kind man and we will miss him very much. We enjoyed service and sharing times at K&W.
