    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time. I didn’t know Ben very well, but his presence was great at BHS. I am one of the secretaries in the front office at BHS – while Ben was a student at BHS, he was known for his wonderful attitude and big smile. He will be missed greatly.

    Dear Tom and Lisa and family,
    We just got home from Ben’s “Resurrection Mass.” It was a beautiful goodbye – inspiring and moving. Like the writings on Ben’s blog which I have been fortunate to recently discover. Ben was a sweet young man. Kory is lucky to have him as a buddy. Our prayers and hearts go out to you now and over the coming weeks and months.
