    May your family feel Gods arms around you as he wraps you in the comfort of his arms. The loss of a husband, father, and grandfather leaves a hole that nothing can fill. Love you all.

    Ann my sympathy is with you and your family in the passing of Ben. May you all be given the strength you need in the days ahead. We always enjoyed seeing Ben at Lynn's ball games in Lunenburg.

    My prayers go out to the entire family. Ann was a very lovely person when we were in school together many years ago. Ben, David, Maureen and their parents were well loved and admired in our 13th Street family. We will all miss Ben. I wish I could be with the family Saturday evening. Please know your many friends share your loss. Jerry
