Our little friend Ben passed away on the night of April 16, 2014. He
was nearly 16 years of age and he defied medical prognosis that only gave him
a chance to live a year or two. Severely handicapped, he spent all
of his life in the care of loving parents and for the last few years in
the care of the good folks at the Missouri Children's Home.
His frail body and heart finally gave out and our Bennie went to be with
the Lord. No longer handicapped by his earthly body, he is leaping
and dancing in the heavenly realms. Who knows, he may even be playing
a little soccer.
Ben touched so many lives and and for his "Celebration of Life" gathering,
great numbers of family and friends came to bid him farewell.
