Default R.I.P. Ben.

Sympathies to the family, friends, and neighbors of Gypsy's Ben. Gone too soon at 91 or so.

Very sad, Tal, and thank you for posting the news. I had many wonderful afternoon conversations with him at Doggie Doo Run Run. Kept an active schedule with his beloved Gypsie whom he said walked into his yard and 'adopted' Ben.

Yes, it is sad. I hope his son finds Gypsy a good home.

Gypsy will be adopted by a close friend of Ben who lives around the corner from my house.

I just met him this year at Doggie Do Run Run. Such a nice man, glad Gypsy has a good home and hope she continues to come to DDRR.

That's also a hope of mine. She does not do well with the larger pooches so maybe the new owner will talk to the DDRR staff to find out Gypsy's history at that park.

The Villages Daily Sun's obituary for Ben Kramer is in Sunday 3/22/2015's Local section. It is basically the same one as in other places.

I drove by on the way back from giving blood at Chick-Fil-A (where it seems my baggage has been catching up to me in many ways) but saw very few cars at about 3:03 PM 3-27-2015 so I just drove home. I only knew Ben from Doggie Doo Run Run and Lynnhaven's postal center. So, I doubted if his family would have heard anything about me.

I hope this was a good service for people who knew Ben. He was a very kind-hearted man in my experiences with him and he will often be in my memories when I am at the places he would be.

Please share if you have any anecdotes about Ben from the funeral service? He sure loved the dog he found here in the Villages in his backyard which looks like she could be ferocious but is quite sweet.

I often do not do very well at funerals being a little bit too sentimental at times. I was probably one of the sharpest dressed blood donors as I usually just go there in jeans and a t-shirt.

Thank you for posting. We only visit Doggie Doo Run once a week, however every time we are there so was Ben and Gypsy. Such a nice man. I know Gypsy will miss him.

Yes Gypsy will. I see that Jewish funerals are different from the ones I have been to so perhaps I did the right thing by not going as I had not researched the etiquette and the like. A friend said no flowers at Jewish funerals from friends showing sympathy.
