Looking down Dinorwic Lake this morning in front of our property at the point of land that Ben once lived on.
Think we’ll take a walk down there today in his memory.
Rest In Peace my friend.

A truely self made man. He will live on in the minds and memories of those he touched. I am deeply saddened by his passing but having known Ben for many decades and knowing of his deep faith he is just starting on his next journey. Rest In Peace my friend.
