Dear Amy, Bob, Al, Jean, and family-
I am so sorry for your loss. I know it has been some time now since Ben's passing, and I just found out today. When I knew Ben 25+ years ago, I always remember him as one of the most cheerful and friendly people I've met. While I mourn the loss, reading your words of the blessings he made of his time is inspiring. I pray his beneficent spirit bring joy to your memories.
Dear Amy...I just found out today that Ben passed away. My heart breaks for you! I pray that God holds you in the palm of his hand and give you peace and comfort. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers.

My heart dropped as I took your call today(American Express). You words in this obituary were beautiful. I'm wishing you the best and you and your family are in my prayers.
My deepest sympathies to Al and Jean and Amy and Bob and the whole Blat family. The Blat's are wonderful people and I was lucky to be their neighbor for 11 years. Ben was a wonderful person and will be missed by all who knew him. Jean watches over Mannie and now Mannie will watch over Ben. God Bless you all in this difficult time. Sincerely, Bob & Kathy Thompson
Although we didn't know Ben, we heard Amy's very moving speech at the Stewardship dinner at Mt. Olivet this fall. Ben sounds like he was one heck of a great guy. Committed to his family, friends and Church. May his memory be a blessing to you.

My deepest condolences on your loss Amy. Though I never met Ben, I feel like I know him through your Facebook posts and Caring Bridge journals - he will undoubtedly be missed deeply. I hope you can find comfort in the love and care of family and friends and in happy memories. Peace to you and all those that grieve Ben's loss.
Ben it was a privilege to work with you at the YMCA. Many fun topics were discussed on the empty pool days. My sympathies to your family.
My prayers go to you and your family. Ben always had a smile and a warm heart to greet me at the East Y.
Sending you our deepest sympathies.

Dear Amy-I miss you from our high school days and am so sorry for the loss you have experienced. I trust that you have many family members and friends close by to console you at this difficult time. I wish I could be one of them. Love, Dana
I am so deeply sorry to hear about Ben. I am still in shock over the news. He was the easiest going nicest guy and we enjoyed many talks together when I was working out at East YMCA. Goodbye Ben. You will be missed. My sympathy to your family and friends.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to your entire family. Reading Bens Obiturary you could't help but see what a wonderful spirit he poccessed. He will surely be missed.
All my thoughts and prayers go out to Ben's family. The world is lucky to have had Ben for 41 years...I wish we had more. I pray that happy memories bring you peace and sunshine!
Dear Amy, Alan, Jean, Robert and Family,
It was our privilege to provide care for your beloved husband, son and brother. We share in your grief and send you our love.
