    Dear family and friends,

    I just learned of Ben’s passing and am saddened to learn of his loss.

    Ben and his team serviced our home when we lived in Hudson prior to moving to Maine 2.5 years ago.

    Ben was a bright light, with a smile in his eyes and a song in his heart. He was larger than life.

    I was always struck by his kindness and humble nature.

    I hope somehow your loss is eased by knowing how much Ben touched others.

    Sincerely,

    Carol Becker
