In addition to these kind people, were longtime friends and “family” Evelyn Covey, Lynn Quade, and Kathleen Crawford who were also the point people in his care team. Their help singlehandedly allowed Ben to stay at home rather than be in a facility which would have cut most if not all interaction with his friends and family network.

Also were the many strong, kind friends in Antrim Village and the surrounding towns, and HOSPICE Care who all stood by Ben, helping to keep him independent until his passing.

No services have been planned at this time.
