Not sure what to say?

We love you and keep our memories of Ben in a warm place in our hearts.

I went to Moultrie High School with Ben. We sang in Acapella, Serenaders, performed musicals and traveled many places together doing concerts and shows. He and I shared fantastic times together that I will never forget. I am deeply crushed today having learned of his passing. I will miss my Friend. Peace Ben.

Leize, my heart is so very heavy with the news of Ben's death. I truly loved him and he was a very special friend! He loved you and Robert with all his heart. I am sorry we couldn't make the service but please know you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers! But he is not suffering any more. RIP my dear friend..........

Leize, I was so saddened to hear that your husband had passed away. My sincere condolences and sympathy goes out to you and your family. Love and prayers to all.


I am so very saddened to hear of Ben's death. I have so many fond memories of his "raucous and refined" gatherings, and am so very glad that I was a part of some of them. He was a gentle soul, and he loved you well - this was clear when we were freshmen, and I am sure he carried that torch until his death. You are in my thoughts, as is your son, Mr. Willis, Hayden and Zess. Take care.


I was so sorry to read about the passing of your husband and my prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.

Leize, I just found out about Ben. He has always had a special place in my heart and now my heart is broken. I will not be able to make arrangements to be there for the service. My love goes out to you, Robert, Uncle Porky, Zess, Hayden, and the rest of our family and friends. I am in total shock.


My heart is very sadden. Please let me know of anything I can do to be of support
