So very sorry for your loss. I know that Ben is now at peace and enjoying his reunion with Virginia.

I miss Ben. I enjoyed his company when I was with him or talking to him on the phone. I wish I had seen him or talked to him one last time when he came home from CA. Too late to speak in person now, but I can talk to Ben any time now, day or night. Tell him what I want him to know -that I will miss hearing his voice and the look in his eyes when we were connecting on a particular subject. And Ben's laugh and smile on is face. These are in memories and photos now. I won't forget what his friendship meant to me.

Ben was a kind hearted person. Like many people, Ben enjoyed sports, watching them and playing them. We went to games and watched them on TV. Ben also liked a good conversation. He enjoyed history and knew a lot about many things. When we talked, Ben would sometimes explain things in depth to me in a way I could understand and I would be amazed how he knew so much about the topic. I'd ask and he'd just say he read about it somewhere. Ben was very bright but he didn't flaunt it.

When I'm around young people and see the promise in their future, I am so glad and hopeful for them. To be young... Bens' promising future and young life was cut short unexpectedly. I believe that Ben is in Heaven now. I pray that some day I too may go to Heaven, to be in the His Grace and know the Glory of God as Ben does now. I hope some day to see Ben again. To talk to him, to see him smile and remember all we've been through and know that in Heaven, all is good and God is with us.
With Love, Rick

Ben was a special person. He visited our house frequently; was always polite and kind and gracious. He was raised to respect his elders and you always felt that. I know Ben struggled with many things and I tried to remember him in my prayers. I will miss Ben. So sad but he would want us to go on and live our lives with happiness and joy.
With deepest sympathy to Chrissy, Josh and John.
With Love, Susan
