My deepest sympathy to Mr Ben’s family. He lived a long life. Take comfort in knowing that God promises at Acts 24:15: “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Soon we will see our loved ones alive again. God will give you strength and courage to cope with your grief.
Ben, I missed you so much, Your the best brother in law anybody could have. We had so much fun from hunting deer in Guam to fishing in san diego. Sitting around listening to island music and telling jokes about our brother Rick and you would crack up and had me crying. We had so much fun and the stories of your hunting and fishing days in guam, i really missed and loved you so much and may the good lord watch over you….. RIP brother
