Ben’s mother, Janet Fishman Newman’s death, 11 days before his eighth birthday, left a cavernous hole in his universe. Yet while his mother passed away all those years ago, not a single day goes by without the reminder that she helped Ben become the man that he is today. Her strength, her love, her work ethic and her legacy live on through him, through the family he has created, and through the work he does. He has come to realize that she was demonstrating a very important truth – our circumstances in life are much less significant than our responses to them.
