Ben was such a great man and will truly be missed. I had the pleasure of working with him for years and will always remember his wanting to drink a Dr Pepper whenever we would meet! He also had a smile that would light up his face. He will always serve as an inspiration to me.

He is one of three people that has left a hugh impression on my life and Ministry. I will never forget him. He has been a great friend. My Prayer are with the family.

Ben is my precious uncle Joe's brother...But he was also my father's close friend...Joe, Ben and dad had such a sweet fellowship...I absolutely loved seeing their interactions...I can only imagine what that reunion was like when dad and Ben were able to pick up where they left off...I can assure you there was a lot of laughter...If I know dad he was probably very insistent on wanting to show Ben all that he has discovered these past few years...Ben probably shook off his hand and said "Wait a dog gone minute, Jim. Let me catch my breath first."...

My Grandpa was probably the coolest Grandpa ever. He went on mission trips all over the world. He was an artist. He even fought in the Korean War! I have so many sweet memories of my Grandpa from the annual trips my family took from Alabama to Oklahoma... Going to see the massive horse called "Big Ben" at a horse stable, racing his planes down the hall way, looking into his shed while he was doing yard work, and then looking at all his neat collectable cars and that glass chess set...I'll miss him a lot, but I know where he is, the only thing on his mind will be worshiping God.

Donna, I was shocked to hear on Saturday night that Ben had passed away. I am glad I got to talk to you and the girls this summer. Melanie and I will be praying for you and your family. I enjoyed my time at Highland Hills as the Music Minister when Ben was the pastor. He taught me many things I will remember throughout life. Let us know if there is anything at all we can do for you.

Ben saw the world through God's Eyes. He certainly saw things in me I didn't see in myself. It has been said; I wouldn't be who and where I am today if not for Ben. It's true. He was a Pastor in every sense of the word. I look forward to sitting with him at the feet of Jesus in Glory because that's where he'll be, praising God and continually praying for those that will follow him there.

Doesn't Ben have a brother named Joe W. Mosley just wondering?

This old world was a much better place because of Ben Mosley. Talk about a man's man. No b-o-y, he showed all us young men at Trinity Baptist OKC how to be a good man, show respect to women, be cool, have fun and devote your life to following Jesus Christ. Thank you Ben Dover for all the fun memories and lasting education. You made a huge impact on many of us far and wide in this world. Much love, Dale and the whole TBC gang
