    Connie and Terry and Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. You all are in my prayers. I have some great memories of Ben growing up! I remember meeting Ben when Dad and Terry worked together and we was just kids, then ended up going to High School together. I definitely considered him a friend and he will be missed.
