One Birthday long ago,Howe and I gave Williston a CD titled Clarence Carter and the song that could get Ben off his chair. STROKING. Eventually he started to explore the rest of the CD. Usually a quite man, Ben would sing along with all the songs on the CD

Condolences to Lolly she lost her companion. We can't change anything now that he has left. I don't remember the year Howe and I went to one of Bens' Birthday parties and My gift was a CD Dr. CC and for the longest time Ben would play just one song over and over again and again
