he was definitely one of the greats. The old cliché is still true - they don't make them like they used to!

I was Blessed to know and work with Ben and the Stand By Me Foundation. He was a "Rock" for many and a great friend to me. He will be missed but he is singing in Heaven now and in our Hearts forever.
