Both of your parents were important people to my parents. Like your parents, my parents were transplants from the East Coast (NY). They enjoyed Ben and Gloria who were smart, Intellectual, with a real edge to them. Recently, my Mom, Audrey, loved that Ben and Gloria were in her regular card game. They will be missed.
