This young man had a incredible spirit and was just as sweet and funny as can be! We loved watching him and seeing how amazingly talented he was at his young age. He had things happen to him in his life at such a young age that no one should ever have to see or deal with. However, he came through it strong and wanting to always help others! You never would have known he was fighting such a fight by the way he always had a smile on his face. May the strength from one mom that has lost children as well go out to his family and know that we keep you all in our prayers RIP YOUNG BEN.. strength and love to your family
we will miss you.. Thank you for showing all of us that how much we all can persevere and love even in the face of tragedy and sadness and how we all need to come together in such a terrible time of the world and hope we can all live by your example
RIP
