Dear Bea, it has been many, many years but I can still remember you and Ben at the Water Carnival in Lake View. You both were so happy and loving life. I just wanted to tell you how sorry we are when we heard about losing Ben. Words can not express the lost the world will feel without him. All our love Joy, Christy and Patrick.

Ben was our friend. He was a good man.

It has been a life time ago that I knew Ben yet the memories remain impressed upon my heart forever. Ben and his folks provided me with a sense of belonging, a family. Their love and support were fundamental to my life then and became the cornerstones of my life today.

It is with sincerest regret I am not able to attend Ben's memorial. My love and support are being sent through prayers for his family. May God grant each of them peace, comfort and strength to endure their loss.
