This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. I met Ben when we were both 22 through mutual friends shortly after I moved to Denver. He let me know about a vacancy in his building and I moved into the 2nd floor and he lived on the 3rd floor. We were friends for many years and kept in touch. I visited him a few years ago when I was passing through Chicago and was able to check out his beautiful Townhouse and the home he lived in on the other side of it. He dearly loved his dogs he had over the years and took great care of them. I know the last year and a half were really rough but I am glad you had your sister Brenda to help assist with your needs. I hope you are at peace now.
    See you on the other side, Cameron Burno
