I have known Ben's Grandmother, Mary Remsing, since our early adolescence and she was my most very cherished friend. When Ben was born Mary was most enamored with Ben and due to his illness wanted desperately to protect him. We had many conversations of her love, concern and fears for him. She hardly could restrain herself from traveling from Washington to Pennsylvania to see her angelic, beautiful grandson. I am so very saddened to hear of Ben's death and wish to express my sincerest condolences to Richard, Karen and the whole family.
