Not sure what to say?

Dear Roxie, Jeff, Tyler, and Kayla,

We are in the fourth week of the loss of Ben now. Not too much time in a day goes by that I don't think of him. My heart continues to ache. May you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family, your friends, Ben's friends and all others. Ben's spirit lives on and always will. We will cherish the memories of Ben forever. I will miss and love my nephew, Ben, forever.

My caring thoughts and prayers, Love your sister...

I am sorry, Jeff. You may not remember me; we used to work together at NSSC-

Jeff Roxanne and family, I am so sorry to hear of your son's death. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Dear Newell family,
My daughter Lucy was a very good friend and coworker of your son at State Farm. Ben was in our home numerous times and I just wanted you to know what an impression he made. Laughter and kindness seemed to accompany Ben. I just wanted you to know you raised a fine young man who made lives better by his presence. He is so missed and I can not imagine your sorrow. Our prayers are with your family.

Newell family,
I was so heartbroken to hear of the loss of your Ben. Ben was a classmate of my son, Alex Pappas, and I remember him to be such a sweet young man. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Newell family,
Our hearfelt condolences go out to each of you. My husband, Tim, and I met Ben when he was roommates at University of Iowa with our son , Michael Cahill, Sam and Matt. We met Ben twice and we were so happy that Mike had such a great rommate, along with Matt and Sam. The 3 Mason City guys took Mike into their circle of friendship and made his college years special. Ben had such a kind and warm demeanor and that great smile!From what I am reading, in a short span...

Jeff and family,
I am so sorry to read about your loss. I remember when you would bring your kids to Curries and I was able to meet them and your wife. He was too young to go. However, it sounds like he had such a full life. He would have been a huge benefit to humanity in years to come. God has his plan and I guess he needed Ben to fulfill that. God Bless!!

why?? Jeff and Roxanne,our hearts and prayers are with you. God Bless
