I remember Benson Ford so well from my childhood. Benson and Gaby and their children Michael and Jackie lived next door to me in Berkeley when I was a little kid and Jackie was one of my best friends. My dad told me stories about when he and Benson used to go skiing together up in Tahoe. They were good friends. Jackie and Michael, if you happen to read this please get in touch. I would love to reconnect with you! I live in Albany California. So sorry for your loss. With friendship and so many precious memories, Sasha Jako
